Today, we launched No Excuses 2018.

WAIT, BACK UP

In 2016, we introduced our non-partisan No Excuses platform to inform and activate our audience to vote in the general election. And we were blown away by your response. Altogether, we registered over 110,000 Skimm’rs to vote. Over 95,000 of whom…

In the early Skimm days, we became excellent stalkers. No, seriously. We once waited outside of a hotel bathroom for Susan Lyne (sorry, Susan!). We tried to find out which exercise studio Jenny Fleiss went to. And we spent three years trying to find anyone, who knew anyone, who knew…
