Helping to educate students on voting
The upcoming election will have several candidates on the ballot, most notably a seat on the Supreme Court, so there has never been a better time to boost voter awareness.
Madison College is looking for two Democracy Fellows to represent the college, emphasizing engaging other students about voter awareness and civic responsibility. Partnering with the Campus Vote Project (CVP) website, the college seeks self-motivated, democratically engaged and politically interested students.
Democracy Fellows need to be willing to help other students register to vote and engage in dialogue around democracy. The CVP interviews and hires the Fellows.
According to Noah Foster, Wisconsin Deputy State Coordinator, Campus Vote Project, a Democracy Fellow is a student who encourages civic engagement but remains nonpartisan in their actions.
