Welcome to the Voter-Friendly Campus Designation page dedicated to supporting and hosting resources for schools going through the Voter-Friendly Campus Designation process. If you are not a voter-friendly campus designee, email[email protected] to find out how you can be involve in the future!
Phase 1: Campus Plans due July 31st
We require Voter-Friendly Campus Designees to complete a campus plan detailing how they plan to carry out democratic engagement work on their campus this year. In order to assist you in that process, we have put together a collection of resources.
A strong campus plan will include but is not limited to
- Overview: Why your school is interested in the designation and the top three goals for democratic engagement during the fall semester.
Coalition: Who is on your coalition and why they are key to your democratic engagement work.
- A well-rounded coalition will include students, faculty, administrators, and election partners.
Description of your work: What will you be doing in the fall and how will you be doing it. Make sure to try and include all 4 buckets:
- Voter Registration
- Voter Education
- Ballot Access
- Voter Turnout (GOTV)
- Timeline: When will you be carrying this work out on your campus including dates and resources that would be helpful to complete that work (i.e. palm cards, posters, student guides, etc.)
- Success: What does success look like for your campus? How do we measure our efforts?
The following are documents designed to help you formulate your campus plans
- The Four Key Buckets of Work
- Best Practices for Voter Engagement
- Building a Plan: Step-by-step Worksheet
