Student Voting Resources
College students have important voices and perspectives on the future of our country and should be empowered to vote and make a difference. But if you’re new to voting, where do you start? The Maryland Board of Elections, the Campus Vote Project and Rock the Vote have helpful information for students looking to know more about the voting process.
Vote Smart’s mission is to provide free, factual, unbiased information on candidates and elected officials to all Americans.
Nonpartisan, independent and nonprofit, the Center for Responsive Politics is the nation’s premier research group tracking money in U.S. politics and its effect on elections and public policy.
Engage voters from underrepresented communities
Voter disenfranchisement hits communities with people from predominantly underrepresented backgrounds more than other communities. To learn how to combat this, Cliff Albright, of Black Votes Matter, came to Montgomery County to tell us about this group’s work.
