2021 AWARD RECIPIENT

"I would not have voted for my local officials, if MyVote did not exist." [from a user]

Sari found that voters were uninformed about local candidates’ positions, and consequently, politicians took little responsibility for their campaign promises. This compelled her to co-found MyVote Project, a student-led education organization and website that provides accessible nonpartisan voting information, including every candidate’s background, policy stances, news articles, and social media. MyVote also hosts candidate forums, policy events, and Get Out The Vote (GOTV) activities to educate the public and hold politicians accountable. MyVote has mobilized 200 student volunteers to research 5,000 candidates; over 3,000 users in more than 20 states accessed the website; their GOTV phone banking has reached 15,000 people and MyVote social media content has reached 25,000 users.
