Through years of supporting student voter engagement efforts, the TurboVote team has worked alongside campuses to conceptualize, refine, and execute best practices for meeting young voters where they already are... online! This lightning presentation will offer attendees a variety of ideas for how to effectively incorporate voter engagement into existing campus structures (think: online student portals, course registration, new student processes) in order to increase student voter turnout in 2020 and beyond. Through the sharing of campus success stories and a bit of audience participation, attendees will walk away with the understanding that, by creating modern on-ramps to voting that leverage the student experience, campuses can strive toward a community culture where registering to vote is as instinctive as registering for classes.

TurboVote is a product of Democracy Works—a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization working to improve civic participation by simplifying and modernizing the voting process for voters and election administrators. Campuses across the country use TurboVote to empower students to vote in all their elections—local, state, and national. TurboVote helps users register to vote (either in their institution's state or home state), request an absentee ballot, and sign up for text/email election reminders.
