Our country needs young voters now more than ever – because voting is the most important way we can hold our leaders accountable.


To create real change, we need millions of young people to engage in our democracy, understand the issues, and head to the ballot box.

That’s why the students of March For Our Lives are calling on mayors to support a national, bipartisan youth voter registration initiative.

Mayors will pledge to make sure that all the students in their city are being informed as to what is happening on a local level. The mayors will also collaborate with other mayors, and empower their communities to have their youth voices be heard during elections through get out the vote campaigns.

In conjunction with The U.S. Conference of Mayors, African American Mayors Association, and cities across the country, this coalition will work with local leadership to ensure the right to vote and be heard is available to all students in all communities.


Take the Pledge

We believe that leaders should make it easier for our country’s youth to register, vote, and participate in our democracy.

If you are a mayor or a member of staff, please fill out the form below.

*As part of this coalition, you pledge to dedicate resources to supporting a day of voter registration in every high school and college in your city, and have your name used by March For Our Lives
