This video highlights the collaboration between Project Vote and Action United Education Fund of Pennsylvania to encourage low- and moderate-income Americans to Get Out the Vote in 2010.
Voter participation by historically underrepresented constituencies--including very low-income Americans, Americans of color, and particularly young minority voters--increased in 2008. However, the fact remains that voter turnout is consistently lower in mid-term election years. Overall, Project Vote estimates that fewer than 50% of eligible voters may participate this year if voter turnout in 2010 follows historical trends.
That's why, in the days leading up to the 2010 election, Project Vote -- a national leader in nonpartisan voter participation field work -- is working with trusted local partners like Action United Education Fund to increase voter participation in 2010. This intensive campaign is focusing on historically underrepresented populations who saw strong turnout in the 2008 election, including 1) Black and Latino voters; 2) New registrants since 2008; and 3) Americans under the age of 30.
