Talking About Elections In Your Classroom

Posted by Campus Election Engagement Project on October 8, 2018

If you want students to vote, your best bet may be to facilitate classroom conversations that encourage their electoral participation. Here are some reasons why election-related conversations in your classroom matter—and suggestions on conducting them.

Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP), is a national nonpartisan project that helps administrators, faculty, staff, and student leaders at America’s colleges and universities engage students in federal, state, and local elections. We combine our powerful resources with personalized coaching, guiding schools on how to use our resources and navigate students through ever-changing barriers to voting. Working with us, schools help their students to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves on candidates and issues, navigate voting laws, and turn out at the polls. Because individuals who vote when they’re young tend to continue, and because we help schools deepen their electoral engagement each cycle, we generate both immediate and long-term impact. We work with stakeholders throughout our partner campuses to engage students in democracy.
