Rock the Vote is the largest non-profit and non-partisan organization in the United States driving the youth vote to the polls. Fusing pop culture, politics, and technology, Rock the Vote works to mobilize the millennial voting bloc and the youth vote, protect voting rights, and advocate for an electoral process and voting system that works for the 21st century electorate. Since 1990, Rock the Vote has revolutionized the use of pop culture, music, art and technology to inspire political activity. Now, for almost 25 years, Rock the Vote has pioneered ways to make voting easier by simplifying and demystifying voter registration and elections for young adults.

Whether it’s Madonna wrapping herself in the flag for the first Rock the Vote PSA or Snoop Dogg launching our bus tour in 2004, Rock the Vote represents the historic and groundbreaking intersection of culture and politics.

In 1993, the organization helped lead the push for passage of the National Voter Registration Act, also known as the Motor Voter Bill, and have consistently been supporters for and innovators of better and more effective voter registration systems. Rock the Vote was an early advocate for states allowing voters to register by mail and were the first organization to use a toll-free number to register voters over the phone. Most notably, Rock the Vote was the first organization to create a voter registration tool to register voters online.
