• Campus Takeover

    of National Voter Registration Day

  • A Day for Democracy

    National Voter Registration Day

    September 24, 2019

    “We believe that our democracy is stronger when more people participate in it - especially students.”

     

    National Voter Registration Day is a day of civic unity and Campus Takeover is an effort on this day to mobilize students nationwide to register to vote, creating celebratory environments around voting, and fostering a culture of civic engagement on their college campuses.

  • What Is Campus Takeover?

    The Campus Takeover program is co-led by the Alliance for Youth Organizing and Young Invincibles’ Students Learn Students Vote Coalition. The two organizations lead the Campus Takeover efforts to share resources, build community, and support those who are hosting National Voter Registration Day activities on college and university campuses.

     

    This is an opportunity for your organization, office, and/or campus to be opt-in to the larger conversation on how to foster a culture of civic engagement on your campus and community around you. Whether this is your first time participating or your fifth time, you should opt-in so you can be in the know of what’s going on across the country on one of the best days to celebrate democracy.

  • Who Are We?

    Alliance for Youth Organizing (Alliance) is a nation-wide network of local, youth-led organizations working to build the political power of young people across the nation through community based issue advocacy and robust civic engagement work. For more than seven years as a network, the Alliance has mobilized hundreds of thousands of young voters, advanced issues like Automatic Voter Registration, founded national holidays like National Voter Registration Day, trained thousands of young leaders, and engaged millions of young people in elections up and down the ballot.

    Young Invincibles (YI) is a national organization, working to engage young adults on issues, such as higher education, health care, civic engagement and jobs. YI’s mission is to amplify the voices of young adults in the political process and expand economic opportunity for young adults ages 18 to 34.

     

    Founded by Young Invincibles in 2016, the Students Learn Students Vote (SLSV) Coalition is a group of over 350 non-partisan organizations, college and university faculty members, campus administrators, and local election officials nationwide dedicated to increasing voter engagement on college campuses. SLSV believes in the importance of incorporating democratic engagement into campus life and work to identify best practices for institutions of higher education around voter registration, voter education, ballot access, and voter mobilization.
