Case Western Reserve University is one of 231 college campuses across the country designated as a Voter Friendly Campus in America. In recognition of National Voter Registration Day today, The Daily compiled an overview of resources the campus community can connect with to ensure they’re prepared to exercise their right to vote.
At Case Western Reserve, the staff and volunteers at the Center for Civic Engagement and Learning (CCEL) are known for leading the university’s efforts on voting engagement. The center’s Voting Outreach Team will be in the Thwing Center atrium today, Sept. 28, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to help faculty, staff and students prepare for the upcoming election Nov. 2.
During the event, members of the community can:
- Register to vote;
- Request an absentee ballot;
- Find their polling location; and
- Enjoy free snacks.
Additionally, all members of the Case Western Reserve University community can use TurboVote, an online resource that enables them to get all the materials they need to register to vote, update voter information, and/or request an absentee ballot.
Once you’re registered to vote, CCEL’s assistance doesn’t end. The center offers information on the types of voter identification you’ll need at the polls, details about early voting, a list of voting locations for those living on campus and more.
Ready to register? Make sure to stop by CCEL’s table in Thwing Center today and check the CCEL website for more resources.
