- Get to Know YOUR Campus: Find out if your college campus offers voter registration forms and activities. How involved is your administration and Office of Residential Life with the civic engagement process? Are any voting locations on your campus, especially if large numbers of students live on and around campus? You can find out if your campus has polling locations by talking to your student government and Office of Student Affairs. You can also contact your National Campus Organizer if you want to work to get one implemented.
- Build a Strong Coalition: As part of a feminist club’s platform, we must continue to build strong relations with different student organizations and the student government to make sure our voices are heard. What’s a better way to send a strong message of solidarity than working with the peers around us? Remember: your activities must be non-partisan, and should inclu
de all campus organizations that are committed to registering students to vote.
The time to get a jump start on mobilizing your campus for November 2012 is NOW in order to ensure that our rights are at the center of the dialogue come election time. Contact your National Campus Organizer if you have any questions about GOHV or start a dialogue by writing your questions in comment section!
