As a values-driven institution that emphasizes the importance of global citizenship, Stetson strives to develop the habits of citizenship that will last our students' entire lives. One of the most important - and most fundamental - aspects of being an engaged citizen is participation in our democracy through voting.
#StetsonVotes is the one-stop site for all your voting questions and resources. In order to vote in elections, there are three things that you need to do:
- Step 1: Get Registered
- Step 2: Get Prepared
- Step 3: Go Vote!
If you are interested in volunteering with a campaign, with our local Department of Elections, or with our get-out-the-vote efforts here at Stetson, make sure to check out our Volunteer Opportunities.
If you are interested in resources to integrate civic learning and democratic engagement into your programs or courses, visit our Resources for Faculty.
