Youth Vote is created by youth for youth. The purpose of Youth Vote is to provide a non-partisan venue for empowering youth to vote and be involved in the democratic process. The Youth Vote 2016 Mock Election is a vital to this goal. Youth Vote would not be possible without efforts by a dynamic planning team of engaged young people with support from the community, non-profits, many Alaska businesses and the Anchorage School District.

 

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
