How we’re throwing down
* Talking to lots and lots of people
* Class raps: Ask your professor if you can take a minute to talk at the beginning of class about why it’s so important that people go vote! Pass out stickers and voter pledges for people to fill out!
* Club raps: Same deal, but at a club or group meeting!
* Tabling: Set up a table in a high traffic area. Pass out stickers, have people fill out pledges!
* Canvassing: Similar deal, but without a table. Hit up the dining hall or another high traffic spot and talk to people!
* Hitting up parties and events: Event happening on or around campus? Bring stickers and voter pledges, and make it rain.
* Parties at the polls: On the Saturday (early vote) and Tuesday (election day), we’ll be throwing parties at the polls. This is like tabling, but could involve a DJ, a food cart, and more. We want to hype up the vote and turn folks to the polls !
* Brunches, food carts, speakouts, flash mobs, get creative…
