Sample Message to Young Voters

Dear Student/Friend/Young Colleague/New Team Member:

2020 is a vitally important election year. I am writing to encourage you to join me in exercising our civic duty by voting on November 3rd.

Your vote really does matter. Each election, we choose the leaders, at the local, state, and national level, who will have a major impact on our present and future. If you don’t vote, you are leaving it others to make critical decisions regarding your future. Therefore, now is the perfect time to familiarize yourself with the voting process and the candidates.

According to data and analysis by the United States Census Bureau, only 46.1% of 18-29-year olds voted in 2016, the last presidential election year. That number trails the voter turnout rates for all other age groups. by as much as 25 percent. If you want your voice to be heard and candidates who represent your views to help shape what the future looks like, then you need to vote for them.

To learn about voter registration, polling locations, advance voting, deadlines, and general voting questions, I encourage you to visit the Johnson County Election Office by clicking here. To learn about the candidates who are running, go to or follow VoteJoCo on YouTube.

Don’t miss out on this chance to vote for your future. Every individual’s vote does count and can be the difference. As political scientist Larry Sabato wrote, “Every election is determined by the people who show up.”
