THE HISTORY OF VOTING

June 20 22:02 2016 Print This Article

Through sharp and hard-hitting animation rooted in a youth pop cultural aesthetic, and by using celebrity narrators ­Grammy Award winning artist John Legend, Glee’s Darren Criss, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton and R&B singer, Bridget Kelly – the video speaks directly to millennials’ sense of what is exciting, important and cool. By doing so, the video engages them in a discussion about America’s voting history and inspires them to register to vote.

Teachers across the country are educating their students about the importance of voting & registering them to vote with Rock the Vote’s Democracy Class. Sign up to join them here: http://bit.ly/GMuRoi
