The Voting Experience
The Voting Experience: An annual student-led voting event
Four Tri-C scholars, Ade A., Arman S., Donte J., and Samantha F. are serving as Campus Vote Project Democracy Fellows at Tri-C for 2022. They work with Tri-C Government Relations for the calendar year engaging in nonpartisan, peer-to-peer student voter engagement.
Our annual voting event, The Voting Experience - for students, by students - will be held for the fifth year, launching online on Constitution Day (Sept. 17), with new student-led videos added through National Voter Registration Day (Sept. 20). The branded, pop-up voting event serves as an ever-growing legacy project for each cohort of Campus Vote Project Democracy Fellows serving at Tri-C. It also supports Tri-C's role as a Voter Friendly Campus and an Ask Every Student Codesigner Campus.
