We held an astonishing 1500 voter registration and education events. Our small staff of 5 full-time and 4 part-time organizers oversaw 1,979 volunteers working across 12 counties.
In 2018, we launched new YCV teams in 6 new counties—including five Eastern NC counties—and built up our newer teams in Guilford, Alamance and Mecklenburg.
With this large-scale expansion, we now serve over 3.3 million voters—we are able to make real change in NC!
Our work helped fuel historic turnout! Nearly 52 percent of North Carolina voters cast a ballot in this election—up from only 44% in 2014.
In 2014, YCV trained 200 volunteers, registered 2,114 voters and educated nearly 40,000 voters. Look how much we have grown since the last midterm!
We are working hard to build on our rapid expansion and outstanding results from 2018!
