Activites and Programs Campus Vote Initiative

Campus Compact has developed strategies to help students and others on campus create nonpartisan initiatives to encourage voter registration and participation. The following strategies are appropriate for use in conjunction with local and state elections that occur annually as well as for national elections. An important goal for campuses is to make voter registration an ongoing activity between election seasons and to encourage students to vote in local races as well as in high-profile national elections.

I have always had a drive to serve others and work for the common good. But I never fully realized that I could go beyond volunteerism--that my opinion and hard work could influence policy decisions. My views changed when I sat in the office of one of my legislators in Washington, DC."
