Election 2016

Each year, we choose one number to inspire and motivate our work. For 2016, it's 475,497. It represents 68% of registered voters in Mecklenburg County.

In 2012, voter turnout in Mecklenburg County was 66.9%. We want to see this number increase incrementally until it's 75% or higher in 2020.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8, 2016.

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 increase the number of people who care enough to take action.

We work to increase voter participation through non-partisan community engagement by registering voters at unexpected places, tweeting about local politics, and creating events that re-imagine political engagement in fun ways. 

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

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

Unless someone like you cares a whole lot, it’s not going to get better no it’s not.
