 MyVote Project Works To Fight Political Apathy Amid 2022 Midterms

MyVote Project (MVP) is a national grassroots organization with a goal: to create a more informed electorate. MyVote publishes factual, non partisan information regarding policies of candidates throughout the country. Upon logging onto, users are prompted to enter their respective zip codes to begin researching local, state, and federal candidates. The MyVote team is also active on social media platforms, including, but not limited to, TikTok, Facebook, and Instagram. All information is updated regularly in accordance with the election cycle. 


Furthermore, the accessibility and capabilities of MyVote would not be possible without the abundance of teen volunteers from across the country. Volunteers engage in research and debrief biweekly in their respective teams in order to set goals that will benefit the organization and the electorate as a whole.

How does MyVote manage to keep followers engaged when a general election is not upcoming?

Although the general election typically gains the most traction, local and state elections are equally important as they impact the lives of many people across the country. MyVote aims to increase political engagement even during what some refer to as “the off-season”. As the midterms emerge amidst the never-ending COVID-19 pandemic, it is especially important for citizens, particularly teenagers to become politically aware.
