RAISE the Vote Campaign

The American Political Science Association’s (APSA) RAISE the Vote campaign, in accordance with APSA’s Statement on Civic Engagement and Voting, aims to provide political science faculty with the tools needed to effectively encourage student registration, voting, and democratic engagement. The campaigns’ main goal is to increase college student registration, voting, and civic engagement through two key mechanisms.

  • Provide concrete steps and best practices that faculty can use in the classroom and on-campus to encourage student engagement
  • Highlight the research, teaching, and service of APSA members related to civic engagement and voting, and encourage faculty to use these resources in their classrooms

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.
