This year, millennials and Gen Z are the largest voting bloc in the United States, comprising 38 percent of eligible voters. The youth vote could decide the outcome of the 2020 election, but young people across the country face unique barriers to accessing the ballot. Panelists will discuss how young activists, communities, and organizations are leading the fight to protect the youth vote and advance youth voting rights in New York and beyond.
