This group of voters is mainly composed of young people (age 18-34), people of color, and unmarried women, making up 52.6% of the people who voted in 2016 and 64% of the current electorate, campaigning to convince more people to get out to vote (Keep in mind that 6.6% of eligible rising American electorate voters did not vote in 2016.). CBSN political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns joins CBSN with the latest in the series, “America’s Right to Vote.” in the video “The impact the “Rising American Electorate” could have on election“, below:
Heading into the final sprint before the president election, campaigns are doing everything they can to organize and get out the vote. CBSN political reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns takes a look at the impact young people, people of color, and unmarried women voters could have on the outcome in November, in the video “Voters in the “Rising American Electorate” could impact election outcome“, below:
Voter Participation Center is an organization that helps to register and mobilize this group of Rising American Electorate. Please refer to the excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:
The Voter Participation Center (VPC)(https://www.voterparticipation.org/) is a U.S.-based 501(c)3 non-profitorganization that seeks to increase voter registration among young people, people of color, and unmarried women, a group it calls “The Rising American Electorate.” Its sister organization, the Center for Voter Information, is a 501(c)4 organization that conducts get-out-the-vote campaigns. VPC runs a large direct mail program, sending voter registration materials to targeted voters. It also produces research material on demographic and voting trends.Between 2004 and 2020, they registered more than 4 million voters. Some election officials and campaigns have contested the group’s methods of voter registration and voter turnout.In 2003, VPC was founded as Women’s Voices Women Vote (WVWV) by Democratic political consultant Page Gardner as a nonpartisan project aimed at increasing the participation of unmarried women.WVWV was formed specifically to focus on the “marriage gap”, and has promoted the term through its research, which determined that marital status is a key determinant of registration and voting, with unmarried women registering to vote and voting in elections at lower rates than married women.In 2008, the organization broadened its focus to include the other demographic groupsthat constitute what it calls the “Rising American Electorate” (RAE), while still retaining a particular interest in unmarried women. WVWV coined the term “Rising American Electorate” to refer to groups including unmarried women, people of color and young people who constitute a majority of voting eligible citizens.In 2011, Women’s Voices Women Vote formally changed its name to the Voter Participation Center, to reflect a broadening of programmatic focus.The VPC’s 501(c)4 sister organization, Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund, continues to operate as the Center for Voter Information. The Center has partnered with national voting groups including Voto Latino. The organization says that it provides its research material, test findings and models to other local, state and national non-profit organizations interested in increasing voter participation among unmarried women, people of color and young people.VPC’s tax forms show revenue of $26 million in 2019 and $4.9 million in assets.The VPC’s programs focus on increasing voter registration, turnout, awareness of issues and civic involvement of demographic groups including unmarried women, people of color and young people. Many VPC programs focus on unmarried women, as this group forms a large proportion of what the VPC terms the “rising American electorate” and its research indicates that marital status is a key factor in determining civic participation.Since its inception in 2003, the VPC has focused its work on efforts to register 1 million voters.Its registration programs have largely focused on distributing applications to register by mail and encouraging their return, and reminding people to vote. Getting registrants to vote in an election is another focus of the organization.Its vote-by-mail programs are tested with a control group before being rolled out.WVWV has issued several reports commissioned from Lake Research Partners on the changing demographics of America, tracking the growth, socio-economic characteristics and voting behavior of unmarried women and other demographic groups.To find out more about The Voter Participation Center, please visit their web site by clicking HERE.

I am a mother/wife/daughter, math professor, solar advocate, world traveler, yogi, artist, photographer, sharer of knowledge/information, and resident of Windermere, FL. I've worked professionally in applied math, engineering, medical research, and as a university math professor in IL and FL for about 20 years. My husband and I loved Disney and moved down to Central Florida initially as snowbirds. But we've come to love the warmth and friendly people offered by this community and decided to move down to Windermere, FL full time in 2006. I am now spending time sharing information/ knowledge online, promoting understanding of math and solar energy (via http://www.sunisthefuture.net ), and developing Windermere Sun (http://www.WindermereSun.com) as an online publication, sharing and promoting Community ABC's (Activities-Businesses-Collaborations) for healthier/happier/more sustainable living. In the following posts, I'll be sharing with you some of the reasons why Windermere has attracted us to become full-time residents of Central Florida region.
