“The future is in the palm of (our) hands, every time we go to the ballot, whether it’s in a week or 30 years down the road. . . No matter what party you identify with, if any, your opinions need to be heard. You may be sitting and thinking that your vote won’t make a difference but adding up every individual who believes in a cause can turn into millions of supporters. As the next generation of this country, we have a responsibility to show up and vote. Young people have the smallest turnout when it comes to voting but we can change that. What you may consider irrelevant or unnecessary now could end up having a bigger impact on your future than you think.”

Battle Mountain High School student Aydan Samuelson

College and University initiatives

NGOs supporting youth vote

  • Next Gen Nevada is working to register and turnout young Nevada voters.
  • Students at the University of Nevada reported that the major barriers to voting were “not knowing enough about the issues” and needing more information about “how to use an absentee ballot and “where to vote.”
