Own the Vote is an initiative from Comcast that aims to engage and educate young voters about the political process.
Leading up to the 2012 Presidential Election, we decided to apply our expertise in both programming and content delivery to offer a platform that would not only offer educational tools for young and first-time voters, but also provide outlets for users to apply that knowledge. Our goal is for both the education and application sections of the site to encourage a call to action, in this case, voter registration and voter participation.
We’ve partnered with several great organizations to develop the technology to do this, including ElectNext, Rock the Vote and the National Constitution Center. We will continue to offer content from new providers who share our goals, our passions and our intent in this project. Stay tuned and look for more as we approach another exciting election.
