Webinar: College Student Voter Access Briefing & Discussion w/ Dept. of Education Officials – Oct 18

Posted by ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge on October 18, 2022

In April 2022, the U.S. Department of Education issued a Dear Colleague letter to remind colleges and universities of their obligations to expand student access to voter registration and election information. With elections happening in every state this fall, the Department encouraged campuses through the letter to make preparations to fulfill this requirement and to ensure students have the information they need to participate in the electoral process.

We are now only weeks away from Election Day on November 8, but there are still many things campus leaders can do to ensure they are not only compliant with the requirements in the Higher Education Act but also to go above and beyond in supporting students’ access to the voting process.

Join the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, the Students Learn Students Vote Coalition, and leaders across the nonpartisan student voting space on Tuesday, October 18 for a nonpartisan briefing and discussion on college student voter access featuring U.S. Department of Education Undersecretary James Kvaal and Assistant Secretary for Postsecondary Education Nasser Paydar.
