Your Voting Date was an effort done by myself and Ezequiel Consoli to encourage young people to get out and vote during the 2018 midterm elections.
Millennials hate voting, but they love dating. So we started a campaign across dating apps and Instagram asking people on "voting dates," or: dates consisting of waiting in line at your polling place.
The social movement caught on quickly and we soon partnered with OkCupid, who sponsored the idea. We hosted a speed dating event at The Phluid Project in NYC to help young people find their date for the big day.
The campaign was a big success, with articles and news stories about it being shared on platforms like APlus and Billboard.
