The TX League of Young Voters Visit the White House

December 6, 2012 Front Page No Comments

The Texas League of Young Voters Education Fund State Directors Christina Sanders and Blake Green traveled to the nation’s capital this week to attend a meeting at the White House to discuss the fiscal cliff issue.  The dynamic duo are passionate about politics and more than qualified to speak on behalf of young voters everywhere.

This year alone, Christina and Blake pounded the ground mobilizing hundred of students to fight both voter suppression and strict voter ID laws in Texas.  As a result of their 2012 GOTV efforts, they were able to collect more than 6,250 voter registrations and 5,880 pledge cards. Additionally, Christina and Blake played a significant role in contributing to break a national record for  early voter turnout in the Harris County precincts.
