About RAISE the VOTE

The American Political Science Association’s (APSA) RAISE the Vote campaign, is a nonpartisan initiative that aims to provide political science faculty with the tools needed to effectively encourage student registration, voting, and democratic engagement. RAISE stands for “Resources to Amplify and Increase Student Engagement.” The campaign includes accessible blog post contributions from political scientists highlighting their research, teaching, and campus engagement related to civic engagement and voting.

 

The resources highlighted by the RAISE the Vote campaign are featured on this site, in APSA member newsletters, on PoliticalScienceNow.com, APSA’s social media channels, and throughout other APSA programming. In addition, the RAISE the Vote Campaign includes special events and grants focused on student voting and civic engagement. Interested parties are advised to check back often for updates, or join the campaign.
