Will More Young People In Idaho Vote This Year? This Group Says Yes
Grassroots voter engagement organization What the Vote Idaho was started by friends Chris Stokes and Nancy Viano. They wanted to figure out how to get high school and college students to vote. They've registered 5,200 young people in advance of the November 3 election.
Now with the election less than two months away, they're making a final push to get as many young eligible voters registered as possible. With COVID-19 putting throwing a wrench in some of their normal in-person registration events, co-founders Stokes and Viano had to get creative. They join Idaho Matters to give us an update on their efforts, along with volunteer and Boise high school senior Natalya Solberg.
