D is for Declare Yourself!

Posted: April 6, 2011 in Education, Uncategorized

Have you Declared Yourself yet? If not, then you are missing out on one heck of a movement that started in 2004. Declare Yourself is a non-profit, non-partisan campaign that aims to get young adults between the ages of 18- 29 out to vote.

Declare Yourself uses multi-media techniques to reach a broad audience and gain a following. Since the organization’s inception it is has used viral videos, traditional media, outreach programs, mobile content and much more to get the word out to young people across the country. In 2004, four million voters registered through the non-profit organization. The word was spread even further by 2008 with the new registration numbers skyrocketing to an incredible 24 million voters.

You can learn everything you want to know about voting on the organizations main website and you can also learn about how to get involved in your community. The website offers links and information in regards to Volunteers in America and the Peace Corps.

Check it out, register and make your voice heard. Declare Yourself!

    Never heard of it, but anything that teaches our youth about the importance of voting has to be a good thing.

    In Australia, voting is supposedly compulsory. But a lot of people still don’t vote. I think we usually have about a 70% voting rate.
