Voting is certainly a big part of it, and we’ll do what we can to get out our vote, but it’s hard to feel inspired about voting when none of the candidates seem to be standing up for you, or come across as distastefully partisan. This is the chicken and egg problem. Political parties design their platforms around who organizes and shows up. If we don’t organize before voting day, then parties won’t prioritize what matters to us in their campaigns, and we’ll have less reason to show up at the ballot box. That’s why the time in between elections is so important, and where our lobby will do some of its best work.
Isn’t the big problem that young people don’t vote?
