We are Voting at UCLA
THE BEST WAY TO INSPIRE YOUNG ADULTS TO BECOME A PART OF THE POLITICAL PROCESS IS TO SHOW THEM THAT VOTING ALLOWS YOU TO BE THE CHANGE YOU DESIRE
VOTE FOR OUR FUTURE WANTS TO DO OUR PART, AND SHOW UCLA STUDENTS THE POWER THEY HAVE IN SHAPING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER.
Who: Vote for our Future, or V4F, is a student run organization dedicated to increasing political activism at UCLA for the 2016 elections and beyond. By working with professors, alumni, administrators, on/off campus groups, the UCLA student government, and many other organizations, V4F is committed to providing students of all backgrounds with the resources needed to express their opinions and become active members of the political process.
Why: It is our obligation as a country to increase voter turnout among the youth, AS roughly one-fifth of individuals 18-24 go to the polls during the mid-term elections (and a little less than 40% for presidential years). With more than 21 million college students nationwide, it is crucial to the prosperity of our country that their voices can be heard. When activated and inspired, young people have made enormous contributions to our society, and will do time and time again if given the opportunity.
How: We believe the best way to create sustainable change is through institutionalizing voter registration and other components of the political process here at UCLA. Regardless if there is a mid-term or presidential election, V4F feels strongly that students should always have the opportunity to vote and become civically engaged in our communities. In our single year at UCLA. we have had tremendous success thanks to our amazing team and partners with institutionalizing our first goal: voter registration
