Glamour is getting serious about its 2016 presidential election coverage with the launch of The51Million.com. The site—named after the 51 million under the age of 45 eligible to vote next year—will feature extensive coverage of the election from a stellar lineup of contributors.
Those making their marks on the 51 include former MSNBC anchor and 2010 candidate for Congress Krystal Marie Ball; CNN’s S.E. Cupp; Washingtonian style editor Hillary Kelly; Daily Beast senior politics editor Jackie Kucinich; Arise Entertainment 360 host and former New York Times style reporter Lola Ogunnaike; and Times politics reporter Ashley Parker.
That’s a nice mix from the left and the right; a group that promises to keep Glamour’s readers—no matter which side their on—informed.
“The 51 Million continues Glamour’s long history of covering political issues from a woman’s point of view— in the past we’ve featured exclusive interviews with major-party candidates, along with sitting presidents, First Ladies, and members of Congress,” said Glamour editor in chief, Cindi Leive, in a statement. “But this election is unique: Not only does it already feature two female major-partypresidential candidates, but there is also a record number of young female voters who are hungry for information about where the candidates stand on the issues they care about. The 51 Million will follow their interests and use social media and video to help them engage with the race.”
