145,363. That's the number of children enrolled in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools for 2014-2015.

They can't vote, but we can. Our goal is to get 145,363 people to vote in this fall's local election - a vote for every child.

WTF. Politics is messy and confusing. Sometimes it is ridiculous and disheartening. Other times, it represents our aspirations as a country and the best of who we are as a people.

Regardless of what you think, politics is important. But that doesn't mean it can't also be fun.

#WTFwevote is a new approach to political and civic engagement. Our mission is to make you smarter about politics and policy so that together we make our city better. 

We're glad you're here, and we hope you stay.

Oh, and one more thing: WTF is short for We're The Future.
