The Buzz on Campuses
Oregon Secretary of State Online Civics Toolkit
The elections civics curriculum was developed through a collaboration of local professors, teachers and election experts. The goal is to provide a beginners guide to elections civics with an Oregon-centric view that anyone can access and use. The Civics Toolkit includes 10 lesson plans that target students ages 17-24. The lessons cover everything from your rights and responsibilities as a good citizen to the history of voting in Oregon and what you need to know before you register to vote in Oregon.
Rock the Vote
Rock the Vote's mission is to engage and build political power for young people in our country. Founded 21 years ago at the intersection of popular culture and politics, Rock the Vote has registered more than five million young people to vote and has become a trusted source of information for young people about registering to vote and casting a ballot.
ServiceVote is Youth Service America's US election-year campaign to engage young people, ages 5-25, in the political process by connecting with their peers, voters, and candidates. Designed for both voting age and non-voting age youth, ServiceVote challenges young people to learn more about our government and political system and to think critically about how they can affect the issues that they work to address through service during elections.
Campus Election Engagement Project
Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) is a non-partisan project that helps America's colleges and universities get as many of their 20 million students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves, and turn out at the polls. Focusing on administrators, faculty, and staff, and ways they can help engage their students, they worked with 500 schools in 2008 and hope to work with even more this round.
Nonprofit VOTE partners with America's nonprofits to help the people they serve participate and vote. They are the leading source of nonpartisan resources to help nonprofits integrate voter engagement into their ongoing activities and services.
The Student PIRG's New Voters Project is a nonpartisan effort to help register young people and get them to the polls on Election Day. They believe the best way to raise the voices of young people and our issues is to register and vote.
