The Fall 2021 semester was my first semester serving as one of the Vote Everywhere Co-Ambassadors. This semester was a bit daunting as we attempted to bring a sense of normalcy back to on-campus events; however, I am confident that our program provided safe and enjoyable experiences for UofL’s students to the best of our ability. Even as the Fall term is drawing to a close, Vote Everywhere is finishing out the semester strong with one final event and continued planning for exciting events in the works for the Spring.
This week, Vote Everywhere hosted a ‘Recharge & Register’ event where students were able to grab a donut and hot chocolate while discussing voter registration. We were able to connect with dozens of students on campus and allow them a space to register, as well as update their registration information if they were already registered. Even though it is not a general election year in Kentucky, it is still important to stay civically engaged and aware of your voter registration status. Students can use our website bit.ly/cardsvote or reach out to us personally at email@example.com with any further questions.
Next semester, we are looking forward to hosting more educational events to spread information about the importance of primaries, as well as a documentary screening during Black History Month to highlight voter disenfranchisement and civic engagement. Students who are interested in learning more about Vote Everywhere are invited to follow our Instagram @uoflve for event updates and volunteer opportunities!
Vote Everywhere is a civic engagement program that incorporates ambassadors on college campuses across the nation for the purpose of effecting positive social change through voter education & registration and community involvement.
