Sample Message to Young Voters
Dear Student/Friend/Young Colleague/New Team Member,
2015 is an important election year. I am writing to encourage you to register to vote by March 17 and join me in exercising our civic duty on April 7.
According to a Pew Research Center report, between 2008 to 2012, the percentage of 18- to 24-year-old voters who actually voted declined. This is the time to reverse trend. Your vote will help elect leaders who will have a major impact on your future. Therefore, now is the perfect time to familiarize yourself with the voting process and the candidates.
To learn about voter registration, polling locations, advance voting, deadlines, and general voting questions, I encourage you to visit the Johnson County Election Office by clicking here or use the votejoco website, to learn about the races, candidates and more: http://jocoelection.org/voters/for_voters.htm. Don’t miss out on this chance to vote for your future. As political scientist Larry Sabato wrote, “Every election is determined by the people who show up.”
