Rock the Vote is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organisation that will officially launch in spring 2007 with the aim of mobilising young people to create positive social and political change in their lives and communities. The goal of Rock the Vote’s media campaigns and street and campus team activities will be to increase youth voter turnout in the 2007 Irish General Election. Rock the Vote will coordinate get-out-the-vote events and voter education efforts across Ireland, all with the objective of ensuring that young people take advantage of their right to vote. Rock the Vote’s work will not end when the polls close. We will empower young people to create change in their communities and take action on the issues they care about.
I’m a big supporter of any thing that encourages young people to get out and vote and I think this is an excellent idea. I look forward to seeing it being launched!
