Reddit kicked off its Up the Vote voter-registration initiative, focused on alerting, educating and activating Redditors on their right to vote.

The platform said in a blog post last week, “Content on Reddit receives an average of 165 million votes per day. But did you know that the 2016 presidential election only saw 128.8 million votes, representing only 58% of eligible voters? Numbers like these are why we are launching our Up the Vote initiative, an effort to get Redditors to vote where it matters most: at the ballot box.”
