Don’t have FOMO. Follow this toolkit and be like these campuses that have successfully advocated for on-campus voting sites.
James Madison University (JMU)
JMU began pursuing a voting site for their campus in August 2015 and it went into effect in March 2016. Student government leaders worked with campus administrators, city officials, and the local elections office, to redraw precinct boundaries and create a campus-specific precinct with an on-campus polling place. Since then, Dukes Vote has utilized the voting site to bring awareness to voting on their campus.
Western Carolina University (WCU)
Students working with Campus Vote Project and Andrew Goodman Foundation put in months of research and work to bring an early voting site to campus. In its first year on-campus it was the most utilized early voting site in the entire county. WCU’s Student Democracy Coalition continues to provide accurate voting information and engage their peers around elections, including an annual celebration at the early voting site.
