REGISTER TO VOTE

  1. ​​ Check to see if you’re registered to vote. If not, follow this easy tool to get it done. Enter your zip code and the rest is straightforward.
  2. Pledge to vote and get reminders so you never miss an election! ​​

PREPARE TO VOTE

  1. You have questions. We have answers. We partnered with Countable to provide you with answers to commonly asked questions about elections. Click here to learn about everything from why there's a two-party system to what the electoral college is.
  2. So you’re all set to vote. You have all the information. You have all the tools. You’re just waiting on the big day. Encourage your friends to join you. Find out which of your friends are not registered to vote here and give them that extra nudge.
  3. Run a voter registration drive at your school or in your community. Our #PowerToThePolls toolkit provides step-by-step guidance on how to get this done. Use #VoterUp to share your progress with us. You can also start your own online voter registration drive and become eligible for a $3000 scholarship. Apply for funding and resources for your drive here.
  4. ​Apply for a grant of up to $1000 from MTV to host a voting celebration at or near your polling location. Host it on the days leading up to Election Day to get everyone excited for the big day or plan it for Nov 6 and tell your friends to vote and join you for some fun after. Or you get to decide. Organizations can also apply! Apply here by October 5.
