Final Actions to Protect the Student Vote

  1. Prepare Students for Voting Challenges: Present these SLIDES at the beginning or end of your lecture or on your class website to inform students on how to recognize and respond to possible voter intimidation at the polls and on mail-in ballot tracking.

2. Ask Your Administration for Their Plan to Prevent Voter Intimidation: Use this EMAIL TEMPLATE to inquire about your school’s plan for ensuring students are able to vote safely and securely. 

3. Plan Ahead for Navigating Post-Election: This election’s results may not be decided in the week of the election and this may spark a range of emotions on campus. 

  • Check out this POST-ELECTION CAMPUS RESOURCE AND RESPONSE GUIDE and be prepared to handle this turbulent period post-election in your classroom and on your campus. SLSV also hosted a training on these resources which you can access here: Agenda with Links and full Recording
  • Watch our last webinar on Confronting Challenges to Student Voting with Gideon Epstein of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Law and Sean Morales-Doyle of the Brennan Center for Justice: Slides and Recording

4. Attend Faculty Debrief Sessions: To provide a faculty support space post-election — whether for talking, venting, working through challenges, or even discussing the state of the potentially-contested race — we’re hosting Faculty Election Debriefs.
