Only one in five eligible Stanford students (undergraduate, graduate, and postdocs) voted in the 2014 mid-term election. In partnership with TurboVote, in spring 2018 a campus effort was launched to inspire eligible students to register and get absentee ballots, to build a community message around the importance of voting, and to overcome obstacles to encourage our community to cast votes in the November elections. Together we created strategies engaging leadership, grassroots action, courses, and more. Come learn what made the difference and share your own ideas and lessons on increasing voting. We will share activities inspired by staff, faculty, and students toward a shared understanding of the importance of voting to the future of our democracy. Because "Democracy is NOT a Spectator Sport!"
