Channel Design for #NatinoalVoterRegistrationDay.
The purpose of our election coverage is to inform our readers that there are real consequences to our votes, that there are real attempts to prevent people from voting, and that those who stand to be affected by the outcome of this election the most are readers. By the election, we want Refinery29 readers to unambiguously clear on this reality. Disillusioned as many people might be, apathy is the one thing we can’t afford right now.
