Students face practical hurdles to voting.
You can help.
- Problem: Students don't know where or how to get registered.
What You Can Do: Conduct outreach and trainings for campus administrators, student groups, and third party registration organizations; and advertise voter registration information and deadlines to school administrators, and student and local press.
- Problem: Student registration cards frequently contain errors or are incomplete.
What You Can Do: Provide materials for students, administrators, and registration groups about the information needed to register, including what of information is needed to be recognized as a valid address.
- Problem: There have been long lines or other problems at student-heavy polling places in the past.
- What You Can Do: Work with college administrators and third party groups to anticipate the number of incoming students and potential new registrants that will be assigned to polling places; train poll workers for student-heavy polling places about the most frequent problems students encounter and how to handle them on Election Day; and recruit student poll workers.
