Expanding the Electorate to New Generations

Today's young voters don’t vote in the same numbers as older generations, and part of that is because the way most politicians engage with people is from a bygone era. As we look ahead to future elections and the need to create meaningful change in this country through government, how do we engage the massive cross-section of young voters? How can you not only reach an electorate through messaging, activities and platforms that speak to their interests, but also help show them to candidates that speak to their beliefs and values?

Join this panel of tech, political and startup founders as they explore building these new relationships in the digital age, and how politics can grow through better use of tech.
