Voting Toolkit from Gen-Zine
This tool–kit is an organizing resource for students who are interested in improving civic engagement on their own campuses but don’t know where to start. We are here to make civic engagement and participation more accessible by meeting students where they are at. By following the simple steps below, any student can enact change by catalyzing their community.
This tool–kit provides information on how to get to the polls (or mailbox) and how to bring others with you!
ARE YOU OUT OF STATE?
If you go to school out of state, make sure to request your absentee ballot
Check your registration status
Host Your OWN Voter Registration Drive
Now that you are registered to vote, here are simple steps to help other students/young voters do the same:
1. Create voter registration posters to hang around your campus, dorms and neighborhoods...
Include our QR code that takes you to vote.org's information center
If you don’t want to create your own poster, no worries! We’ve done it for you:
Simply print these from www.GEN-ZiNE.com/vote and post them around!
2. Hold voter registration drives on or off campus
Set up a table in areas with plenty of foot traffic and stock them with your QR code-voter registration posters so new voters can come and scan
Partner with local businesses to hold a registration event out of their space
Here is an email template you can use to contact businesses:
