Future Voters Project

Welcome to the Future Voters Project! We hope you’ll join us as we work toward our goal of registering all eligible students by the time they graduate high school.

Join the Future Voters Project and we’ll keep you updated weekly with resources for teaching about voting rights and registering young voters in an election year unlike any other.

Join the Project


Register Future Voters

Find the guidance and resources you’ll need for registering future voters in your school community, including recommendations for including all students and adjusting registration drives to distance learning. And check out our grants supporting nonpartisan, school-based voter registration in the Deep South!

Educate Students

Our lesson bank includes some of our favorite resources for teaching about voting rights and voter suppression. Our growing collection of “Teach This” discussion guides can help you introduce current events into your election teaching. And our professional development and K-8 resources can support you as you engage students of all ages in this election season.

Young people put their hands together in solidarity.

Join Here!

Sign up to join the Future Voters Project, and we’ll keep you posted as we release news-responsive classroom activities. We’ll let you know as we add resources to our site. And we’ll send you a film kit including a viewer’s guide and DVD of our popular documentary Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot—all free of charge.
