Voting is one of the most American acts you can take! We can answer all questions from how to get registered to vote, what to expect the ballot to look like, and just how awesome you will feel after you cast your vote in the Presidential in November! #EIUVotes
We have invited a non-partisan group of people from across campus to come together to help us spread the word about what we are doing this fall on campus! We have three main efforts: educate our community campus with facts, helping our students and campus community get registered to vote here in Coles County or in their hometown, and then get them engaged and excited to turn in their ballot in November’s election!
