Catalyzing the youth vote

A decline in voter turnout is a growing concern for democracy in Mongolia. Using social media campaigns and interactive content in 2020, the Foundation supported a range of youth and women-led organizations to improve voter education and energize youth political participation. Social media campaigns including democracy hackathons, youth policy dialogues, and networking events reached 19,000+ people and accumulated 8 million social media impressions. These efforts helped contribute to a 12 percent increase in voter turnout among 18-25-year-olds, an increase not observed in any other age group.
