Now more than ever, it is important to exercise your right to vote for the upcoming United States elections no matter your political allegiance. With everything that has happened over the last few months let alone years, this election is looking like it is the most important and impactful in recent history, especially for the younger generations; GenZ and Millennials as they now represent more than a third of eligible voters.

Pocket Gamer Staff gave a great analogy “Besides, not voting is a bit like going unarmed into Fortnite, playing CSGo without allies or failing to pick up Mario’s mushrooms – i.e. you’re still in the game, but you’re giving up on a sizable power-up. You’ll also be missing out on a chance to win some awesome prizes!” in their article []. Of course not everyone has to vote, but why wouldn’t you? Voting gives every single eligible individual the opportunity to be a part of something bigger, to be a part of something that can change the course of history and something that can help shape the future for themselves and future generations.

Enthusiast Gaming , the leader in online gaming communities, has partnered with two advocacy organizations; Global Citizen & Headcount in an effort to promote the importance of voting. The goal is to reach the GenZ and Millennial populations as they are predominant in the gaming and esports sectors. Enthusiast Gaming in all has a monthly audience of 300 million gamers across the U.S. and are a strong resource to reach the target audience to promote to vote.
