Oakland Youth Vote AKA Measure QQ will allow 16 and 17 year olds to vote in local school board elections! YES ON Measure QQ IG: @Oaklandyouthvote
16 & 17 year-old Oakland youth were excited to vote in the November 2022 school board elections following the Nov 2020 passage of Measure QQ. But the Alameda County Registrar of Voters has failed to develop a plan for them to vote! This is unacceptable! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sAhxhNmEcUadhLl9Cb85cVCTBQ41GplPALCNDGa5J7U/edit
The @OakYouthVote campaign, led by @OaklandKids1st, aims to give 16 & 17-year-olds the opportunity to vote in school board elections. @COOLHANDLUKE & Sonja Kaleva discuss how the campaign came to be & what lessons they learned.
