Nevada: Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske has launched a website designed to show those too young to cast a ballot, just how the process works. Youthvote.nv.gov is the site for the 2016 Nevada Student Mock Election. The interactive site is open to youth groups from a variety of backgrounds, include public and private schools, homeschoolers and community organizations.
Pennsylvania: Since its launch a year ago, more than 400,000 Pennsylvanians have used the state’s online voter registration system to register to vote or update their information. According to the state, nearly two-thirds of the people who handled their voting registration business online — 62 percent — were under the age of 35, the largest age group to use the program. With 448,188 people using the system, that has saved the state at least 800 reams of paper!
