Frequently Asked Questions 🤔

What is a New Voters fellow?
A New Voters fellow is a dedicated high school student who receives one-to-one mentorship and resources to run a voter registration drive at their school. This is a low-commitment way of engaging your local community, gaining community service hours, and getting great leadership experience. Best of all, any teen can join!
How can I get involved?
High school students are always welcome to register to become a New Voters fellow and spread voter awareness to their high schools. We also run intern cycles every spring, summer, and fall which are open to applications from any high school or college student. You can keep updated on when the next cycle will be open as well as general possible position openings by joining our mailing list.

Why does the teen vote matter?
Teens are highly underrepresented in national, state-wide, and local elections, despite making up a significant chunk of the population of eligible voters. Due to lack of voter resources, ability to get a ballot, as well as general non-awareness of the election schedule, our voice and issues that we care about are often voted on and decided by people much older than us. By running voter registration drives and spreading voting awareness to teens, we work to minimize this age gap and ensure that the teen vote counts for our future.
New Voters Origin Story

My peers and I found our voices in politics when the laws of our land said we could, not before we were old enough to vote, and we have not stopped speaking out since.
