LWVMD joins the ALL IN CAMPUS DEMOCRACY CHALLENGE!
The League of Women Voters is looking for volunteers to contact colleges they care about (maybe as alums, faculty or parents of students) to ask for full student voter participation in those colleges. This campaign is called Ask Your College. Created by the Foundation for Civic Leadership (fcleadership.org), it is a nonpartisan volunteer campaign to urge colleges and universities to ensure every eligible student votes.
To participate, contact your target college(s) and report back the response you receive from the colleges. Go to fcleadership.org to get sample letters to write or email to your college leadership. If you want to check if your college(s) are already involved, go to the RESOURCES section at fcleadership.org. It lists colleges and universities that have already committed to advancing student voter participation as part of the nonpartisan All IN Campus Democracy Challenge. You can learn everything that campuses commit to do at allinchallenge.org.
Please help us increase participation in our upcoming election!
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
