RESOURCE HIGHLIGHT: Vote by Mail Video Series
Check out these three animated videos on voting by mail by Campus Election Engagement Project. The goal of these videos is to help students feel confident and safe about their vote, and to help them and their off-campus peers vote whether their campuses are physically open, online only, or in a hybrid model.
These videos can be distributed via a campus-wide email, on social media, or shown in sequence in the classroom or an online class session.
