Roughly 50 million American residents, including high school students, former felons, and non-citizen residents, will be unable to vote in the midterms. And as the protests organized by Parkland students, the various ballot initiatives to enfranchise the formerly incarcerated, and our fights to save DACA and TPS (Temporary Protection Status, which allowed them to immigrate to the United States due to natural disasters or armed conflicts in their home country) show, their futures in America hang in the balance.
The Love Vote provides a platform for these voting-inelgible Americans to speak to enrolled voters. They create videos and share their stories so that their issues are not forgotten when people make it to the polls.
The Love Vote’s premise is pretty simple. It functions like a crowdfunding website. But instead of raising money, it raises votes.
