Haley, I would love to see sample messages for Canvas... We are launching Canvas in the fall so timing would be great!
Yes, I second the sample Canvas messages!
What do your students use the university app for?
Mike Burns - CVP
thank you! Yes!
We do not have a polling place on our campus...any thoughts/ideas for how to mobilize them? we've tried shuttles in the past but students didn't really take advantage. we also have a "get to the polls party" on election day but not sure that is actually fruitful for increasing voter turnout.
@Brooke this is an initiative called +1 the Polls that is helping college campuses/students work through the process to get polling locations on campus. https://polls.plus1thevote.com/
Not exactly what you asked but another way to think about expanding access for students.
Have you found ways to track online results/analytics of your efforts for voter engagement?
the NSLVE data is amazing but not truly helpful right away since it takes a while to get the report.
Directly from the Election Board!
Your local League of Women Voters organizations are a wonerful resource for voting information.
local and state board of elections
yes love the League of Women Voters! they are very active in our voter registration initiatives.
League of Women Voters are always up to date on any law suits files as well. They will know the laws sometimes better than election officials.
Is there a one stop shop/ shop by state with updated information for each state?...Registration, absentee, etc.
Mike Burns - CVP
We are also communicating with local and state election boards with direct questions (Swarthmore, PA). Chuck Black, PA CVP state coordinator, has also been helpful.
VoteSmart.org and Judge4yourself.com
At Delta College we are planning to put much of our traditional on-campus programming online. But we are perplexed as to how to get students to "tune in". We are a strictly commuter campus and have traditionally relied on face-to-face contact with students in hallways and holding our events in very visible spaces on campus, making it difficult for students to avoid. We are trying to figure out how to replicate the "in your face" approach in the online environment. Simply sharing programming on social media sites dedicated to voting and political engagement will reach only a narrow audience. Any advice would be appreciated!
At MSU Denver we are planning to do some short videos with people like the President, but funny ones, similar to what Wisconsin (I think) did previously...
There still might be ways to access virtual classrooms by working with faculty to do mini-presentations about voting. This is something we do when in-person but could be cone virtually too.
Ditto... asking faculty to do short announcements, powerpoint slides, etc.
is it you all recording the videos or is it from another source? does it feature current students?
We do a weekly slide deck that we send to faculty members to post on the screen at the beginning of class. (Which can be done virtually) Our mascot is a Wildcat, so we call it “Where’s it at, Wildcat.” We put event info there and also create a lot of video messages. Sending videos for weekly slide decks is a great idea.
At MSU Denver, the subjects (President, etc.) will self-record. Our idea is a fake Zoom meeting of the three presidents (we are a tri-institutional campus) asking each other questions and challenges... they are all relatively new so we could have them ask somewhat silly questions.
Thanks for your ideas!
Katie Montgomery asked this question, can someone answer? Have you found ways to track online results/analytics of your efforts for voter engagement?
Any ideas for difficult to convince departments like Enigneering?
Our voting buddy program worked well in 2018, and we plan to promote it again in 2020. I think it can translate to online platforms
for STEM there is a new org called Science Rising that is specifically doing programing for STEM students around civic engagement. https://sciencerising.org/
For CVP, to what extend do our action plans need to incorporate COVID-19 specific response plans? Or can we keep it more open/vague (e.g. we will offer voter registration/AB requests, have events, make announcements in classes, w/out having to specify whether those will be in person, online, etc.)
@David Foreman - what is Voting Buddy program?
Would love more info firstname.lastname@example.org
In the current climate, I think it will be easier to convince the hard sciences why people voting for those who support science is so important! WE are asking all our academic departments to try to show why voting is important to their area of study. You can pretty easiliy connect it to all disciplines.
Voting buddy -- encourage students to commit to a buddy to remind each other to vote on election day. It engenders accountability to a friend. Our president's buddy was our mascot as part of our promotion.
We got lots of feedback from students that it helped.
We did Vote Tripling Pledge Cards for Super Tuesday. Where students put three friends that they want to remind to vote and then push them notifications ahead of early voting and Election Day to help them remind their friends.
Thanks everyone! Great ideas
Thanks to all!
Thank you all!
