UCLA prof’s ‘non-partisan’ voter registration org partners with leftist activist group
In honor of 100 years of women’s suffrage, a UCLA professor has partnered with a progressive liberal PAC to mobilize young voters on Election Day through a voter registration site billed as nonpartisan.
Kathleen McHugh, a professor at UCLA’s School of Theater, Film & Television, recently launched a website aimed at encouraging millennials and Gen Z to cast their ballots on November 3. Working alongside Susan Epstein Garcia of the New World School of the Arts and Eleanor Barr, a Los Angeles-based attorney, McHugh created “100 for the 100th” to “recast or override the partisanship” she saw in the aftermath of the 2018 election. On its website, UCLA promoted the 100 for the 100th as “non-partisan.”
The website, which includes tools to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, vote overseas, and inquire about restoring voting rights if convicted of a felony, is aimed especially at those between the ages of 18-29.
“Only 43% of this demographic voted in the 2016 election,” Barr added, “which is significantly lower than any other age demographic.”
“I’m sending [100 for the 100th] out to my nieces, and to other people who are younger than me, as well as to all my friends and to all the organizations committed to voting, such as the League of Women Voters. We need to see more civic engagement from young people of all political persuasions; there needs to be a significant uptick in the percentages of people who vote across all eligible ages,” McHugh continued.
