Don't You Want To? Vote 2012
Don't You Want To? is a design-based youth voting campaign aimed at getting college students to become more active and engaged citizens. We hope to use design to go where grassroots organizing and volunteer based registration campaigns cannot. With positive messaging, energetic design, and strategic promotion, we hope to engage youth voters across the country about the importance of using their right to vote.
Don't You Want To does not support any candidate or political party. Our aim is to encourage students to take part in the voting process in whatever manner they choose.
