Help Rock the Vote

As two of the organizers of the Aspen/Roaring Fork Chapter of Rock the Vote, we are looking forward to this weekend’s Spring Jam festivities.

Founded in 1990, and sustained through charitable grants, trusts, and donations, Rock the Vote is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization. Rock the Vote engages youths in the political process by incorporating the entertainment community and youth culture into its activities. From actors to musicians, comedians to athletes, Rock the Vote harnesses cutting-edge trends and pop culture to make political participation cool.

Rock the Vote mobilizes young people to create positive social and political change in their lives and communities. The goal of Rock the Vote’s media campaigns and street team activities is to increase youth voter turnout. Rock the Vote also coordinates voter registration drives, get-out-the-vote events, and voter-education efforts, all with the intention of ensuring that young people take advantage of their right to vote.

Of course, Rock the Vote’s work doesn’t end when the polls close. We empower young people to create change in their communities and take action on the issues they care about. Regardless of whether youth are signing petitions, running for office, contacting their elected officials or taking up a sign in protest, they are all rocking the vote.

Support Local Journalism

The Aspen/Roaring Fork Chapter of Rock the Vote seeks to help area youth become more personally involved in the political process through education, activism, volunteer work and community service. To that end, we are looking for fun-loving and committed volunteers to help Rock the Vote throughout the valley. Although Rock the Vote specifically targets youths and young adults, we realize that civic participation, voting rights, and political awareness are not confined to any age group. Anyone interested in helping a good cause ” and having a lot of fun along the way ” should feel free to e-mail us at: rockthevoteaspen@yahoo.com. Additionally, if anyone has any questions about the volunteer work we do or regarding Rock the Vote activities in general, please do not hesitate to contact us. Look for us this weekend at Spring Jam!
