PHYSICAL REGISTRATION & TURNOUT DRIVES
880,000+ young people in swing states will turn 18 in 2024 but only 30% of 18-year-olds are registered to vote. Our goal is to register all of these new young voters because they will make a critical impact in the election. We are also focused on turning out all young voters 18-29 who can make the most significant impact in the election. Student-led high school and community college voter registration and turnout drives are the most cost-effective mechanism for dramatically increasing youth voter registration and turnout. Based on our success conducting physical voter registration drives at 1,000 key high schools and 100 key community colleges, registering over 50,000 students to vote, TurnUp is hiring students at 2,717 key high schools and 296 under-resourced community and technical colleges to conduct voter registration drives. TurnUp is also hiring community college students to conduct in-person turnout efforts.
65,318 students registered to vote via physical registration drives on key high school and community college campuses.
54,387 conversations about upcoming elections held in person to remind students on community college campuses to vote.

2,000 paid voter registration fellows and interns mobilized to conduct on-campus voter registration drives.
