Volunteering

Research shows that students are more likely to vote when two things happen:

  1. Another student - NOT a commercial, our parents, or professors - encourages us to register and get out to the polls.
  2. When we get the facts - Where do we go? When do we go there? What do we need to have with us?

Hearing from a fellow student and having the facts can increase our likelihood of getting to the polls by almost 10 percent. Let other Lakers know that #VotingIsLit by volunteering with Vote Oswego! We could use your help to reach out to our Laker community and answer their questions about registering, receiving a ballot, and voting at the polls. Even using our hashtags and tagging @VoteOswego on social media is a way to get involved and help our message be heard!
