The New Voters Mission

By the youth,
for the youth.

New Voters began as a high school club in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, where we registered to vote over 85% of eligible students in our founderโ€™s high school for the 2018 midterm election.

That year, New Voters expanded to dozens of schools in Pennsylvania and officially became a 501(c)3 nonprofit
โ€โ€. In 2020, we launched nationally and recruited our team of 50+ interns and directors to expand the reach of our registration model. โ€โ€โ€

โ€Since our inception, we have impacted over 300,000 high school students, registered over 80,000 high school students to vote, and worked with student leaders in 39 states.

The New Voters Approach

Crowdsourced Civic Engagement

Peer-to-Peer Mentorship and Training

We pair our interested student leaders with a trained, in-house New Voters mentor who is also a high school/college student. This mentor works one-on-one with the student leader to provide them resources and guidance on running a voter registration drive at their school.

Voter Registration Drive Execution

The high school student leader runs a drive using their New Voters school-specific registration link. After the drive, the mentor helps them track their impact and guides them in establishing a permanent New Voters school chapter.

Engagement Beyond Registration

The student leader works with their mentor and the New Voters policy team to coordinate community-driven advocacy initiatives and engagement sessions to bring more young people into their state policy conversation. By leveraging their passion, we are able to empower more young people to take an active role in government.
