Preparing you for the upcoming election

 

PROBLEM: LOW VOTER TURNOUT

Did you know that voter turnout in the US is less than 59%? 

GradVote is going to change that.

4 Million people turn 18 each year.

Teaching students the value of voting and how to vote will infuse millions of new informed voters into the system.
