One Simple Goal:
Vote16 Illinois is a chapter of a national, student-led organization that seeks to bring suffrage to youth across the country through legislative change. Through this effort, we hope to become a bastion of youth involvement, to elevate the voices of the future, and to have a bit of fun while we’re at it.
Many Complex Elements:
While Vote16 began as an effort seeking legislative change, it quickly became apparent that such change would be meaningless without a community of youth powering the movement, advocating for the future, and demonstrating their potential as citizens. As such, the campaign now includes multiple civic education initiatives, youth involvement opportunities, myriad events, and a few publications featuring youth, all with the common goal of uniting the community.
