Anchorage Youth Vote
Anchorage Youth Vote is an initiative of the League of Women Voters of Anchorage (AK), with support and funding from its donors and from League Members and the League of Women Voters of Alaska.
Our mission is to provide a non-partisan venue for empowering youth to vote and be involved in the democratic process. Youth Vote is dedicated to providing young people, teachers, educators and the community with the relevant tools to reach this goal. We share a vision with the Spirit of Youth Coalition that all Alaska’s youth are included, heard, and empowered.
Our work this year has included running mock elections, producing candidate forums, creating videos and psa’s, presenting at bullying prevention forums, hosting candidate meet and greets, and attending this summer’s League of Women Voters of the US Convention.
Thanks to League Supporters of Youth Vote
Some members of Anchorage Youth Vote travelled to the League of Women Voter’s National Convention this year. They are grateful to both the LWV of Anchorage, the LWV of Alaska, and individual members who made this trip to Convention possible.
The new Voter Tools on the Youth Vote website was made possible by a generous donation from the LWV of Alaska. Thank you!
Empowering voters. Defending democracy.
We envision a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge, and the confidence to participate.
We believe in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.
