Since the 2022 midterm elections, more than eight million youth have become newly eligible to cast their first vote on November 5, 2024. With these young people on track to set the tone and priorities of our national discourse for decades to come, the Close Up Foundation is partnering with the Deliberative Democracy Lab at Stanford University for a groundbreaking experiment in democracy. America in One Room: The Youth Vote will take place this July in Washington, D.C., gathering a scientifically representative sample of 500 first-time voters from across the country. Together, they will deliberate key policy issues facing the nation and listen to the perspectives of peers and experts of all backgrounds. 

As part of the project, Close Up is building a coalition of higher education partners to help highlight the importance of civic education and continue the work of helping young people develop the skills to become informed and engaged citizens.
