What Can You Do?

Voting in the Presidential Election is the absolute least you can do to participate in our democracy. For those of you who want to do more, here are some organizations you should look into. You can volunteer, intern, or just receive email blasts to stay in the loop!

These are just a few things you can do, if you have any suggestions to add to this list, email!

- Young Democrats of America

- Young Republicans National Federation

- League of Women Voters

- Write to your Senator or House Representative. Check out their website and see if they offer internships of have volunteer opportunities.

- Check out the conventions, internship and volunteer opportunities aare available: DNC and RNC

- Start your own Declare Yourself club on campus

- Get together with friends or classmates and hold Debate Night parties or Primary Results get-togethers. You can hang with your friends and talk about the issues. Many of us are new to politics and don't fully understand the process or the issues. Talking it over with your peers benefits everyone!

- Send out reminders on Facebook to register and vote!
