The 2016 presidential election represents a crossroad for all women, which means it is imperative we cast our vote and make our voices heard at the polls on November 8.
In an effort to promote voting awareness, #TeamBeautiful teamed up with 54 other brands to launch the #OurVoteCounts initiative, in partnership with #RockTheVote, which aims to register a minimum of 100,000 women to vote before election day.
According to the Center for American Women and Politics, 64 percent of eligible women voted in the 2012 election, while only 45 percent of women between ages 18 to 24 marked their ballots, showing that millennial women are turning out at even lower rates than their older peers, a press release for the #OurVoteCounts initiative says.
We’re making it easy for all women to register. Simply use this interactive tool to sign up.
