Are You a Voter? Let Your Bumble Matches Know (and Get Registered in 2 Minutes)
This November, millennials will make up the largest group of voters for the first time in U.S. history. A recent Gallup poll suggests, though, that only 26% of Americans aged between 18 and 29 feel certain that they’ll cast a vote in the upcoming midterm elections.
Bumble wants to help flip that statistic. We believe young people — all young people, regardless of political leanings — are the future. But it’s our responsibility to show up to the ballot box if we want a real stake in the future of the country.
We’re teaming up with public awareness campaign I Am a Voter to share their important message: that our democracy works best when we all participate.
We’ve added a new badge option to your Bumble profile, allowing you to show your pride in civic engagement. Add the ‘I am a voter’ badge to your profile to let your potential matches know you’re committed to casting your ballot in the midterm elections on November 6th. We hope this will lead to interesting, impassioned — but civil! — conversations.
Head to IAmAVoter.com or text VOTER to 26797 to register to vote in two minutes — less time than you’d spend on a subway platform, updating your iPhone apps, or listening to a song on Spotify! You can also learn more about why voting matters.
And make sure you know your state’s voter registration deadline. We’ve included them below to help you out.
We want Bumble users to feel empowered in every part of your lives, and that includes in the voting booth.
