LWVN is always looking for ways to increase voter participation – especially among young people!  We are borrowing an idea from Detroit to reach out to 18-year-olds: It involves sending a Birthday Box to all 18 years-olds on their birthday.  The present/box will contain information about local elections, how to register to vote, how to find information about the candidates, maybe a button to wear on election day, and a hand written letter/note encouraging them to get involved and vote!

    This is a wonderful idea! Hopefully, it becomes infectious and travels through all Illinois school districts. Absolutely needed to empower young people with the power of their vote. Great work!
