A student’s college experience begins when they first arrive on your campus. During new student orientation you are not only helping students register for classes, but easing their transition by providing them with the information and resources they need to succeed.
One of the most difficult things for new students to navigate is registering to vote (What is the deadline? How do I do it?) especially if this is the first time they are doing so. Making voter registration a part of getting settled on campus can make this easier, and sends a clear message that participating in elections is important and a part of the college experience.
Embedding registration into existing student processes such as new student orientation or beginning of the semester check-in, can ensure that every student is reminded to check their registration status every semester. Students addresses change frequently and they need to re-register.
In this webinar, campuses will share how they have strengthened their voter registration efforts by institutionalizing it within orientation and student check-in in creative ways. Presenters will share what they do on each of their campuses, how they they were successful, and the challenges they’ve faced. Presenters will discuss programming ideas, as well as tech solutions, tools and resources.
