Now to your question…..
When ROCK THE VOTE burst on the scene 21 years ago back in 1991, many in the political establishment wrote off the movement as a flavor of the month fad – a gimmick by the MTV generation to have their 15 minutes of fame. Boy were they wrong. WAY WRONG! As the ROCK THE VOTE website states, “RTV has registered more than five million young people to vote and has become a trusted source of information for young people about registering to vote and casting a ballot.” FIVE MILLION. Think the candidates battling it out in the current primary races will take the young vote for granted now? Thanks to ROCK THE VOTE, they assuredly will not. So the trivia question about this far from trivial movement is this: What is the name of the historic bill that was put into law in May of 1993 as a direct role from Rock The Vote’s efforts, and what President signed it into law?
