Even as Princeton’s students deal with the unprecedented challenges COVID-19 has created in their personal and academic lives, many remained committed to fostering a spirit of civic engagement within the University community during this presidential election year. For example, the Vote100 campaign is working with communities across campus to encourage civic engagement in all forms. Sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students and led by students, Vote100 plans voter registration drives, campus-wide debate watch parties, assistance with absentee ballot voting, Election Day celebrations, and social media campaigns to encourage others to engage civically in elections and democratic processes locally, nationally, and internationally. Other Tigers have taken up similar causes: from recruiting young poll workers and providing voter resources, to advocating against gerrymandering.
