Our Voices Matter: Are You Registered to Vote?

Hey Epic Reader, we want YOU to vote! Because voting matters.

We know our community is made up of passionate readers that care about the issues they see in books—and beyond. And we want to empower you to get registered, to get informed, and to raise your voice. We truly believe that your voice is important and that you have the ability to be part of a movement that can create change in the world.

For those of you who are not yet registered to vote, we know it can be daunting. Maybe you don’t know a lot about politics (you can learn), maybe you’ve been told that no one cares what you think (we care), maybe you think that your vote doesn’t matter (it does). Maybe you don’t know how—and that’s why we teamed up with DoSomething.org, a non-profit organization with the goal of motivated young people to make positive change. It will only take two minutes (maybe even less!) so we encourage you to take the first step today:
