Student Voter Engagement Resources

Recent election law changes make Ohio college students vulnerable to voter disenfranchisement. Help protect your fellow students by acting as a nonpartisan Election Protection Poll Monitor this year! Poll Monitors assist all voters outside of polling locations, answer questions, and report problems to the Election Protection hotline. This is a volunteer, non-partisan role. Training and materials will be provided after registration.
