Voting is the basis of a democratic society. It is the most powerful tool for young Mississippians to create transformational change on important issues.
Our voice matters in elections as much as any voting group. In Mississippi we can have an enormous impact on policies that shape the quality of our everyday lives. By 2019, Mississippians under the age of 40 could comprise 43 percent of the state’s eligible voters.
We have the collective power to shape the policy decisions of elected public officials. The right to vote is the lifeblood of our democratic system. Voting in every election, especially local and state elections, is the best way in Mississippi to assure government is accountable, to make the system work, and to safeguard the rights of all our citizens and to ensure a brighter future.
