College students… get out the vote!

On September 26th at 3 PM EDT, Campus Vote Project <http://www.campusvoteproject.org> will be hosting a virtual Town Hall focused on getting college students out to vote this November. Using Google Hangouts, the Campus Vote Project will be moderating a panel that will include Minnesota Secretary of State Mark Ritchie and other student voting advocates, and taking questions via Twitter and Facebook. The focus will be on strategies that election officials, college administrators, and student organizations have taken to help students register and vote. We will hear directly officials that have dealt directly with problems that students have encountered in their college communities and how to overcome those obstacles.

The sign-up page for the event is now live and can be accessed via: http://salsa.wiredforchange.com/o/6411/p/dia/action3/common/public/?action_KEY=6619

We encourage you to promote this on your blog, Facebook page, and on Twitter. The event will be using the Twitter hashtag #CVPTownHall which is also how they will be accepting questions during the town hall.

Campus Vote!

Campus Vote Project Toolkit

The Campus Vote Project, launched in 2012, is a campaign to help college students work with administrators and local election officials to make the process of voting easier and overcome barriers students often face to voting that students often mention such as residency laws, registration deadlines, and strict voter ID requirements. Every campaign needs a plan, so start building yours! Download the Campus Vote Project Toolkit: http://bit.ly/HSNf3X
