NAICU is launching its 2020 Your Vote, Your Voice, National Campus Voter Registration Project with the webinar Voter Registration & Civic Engagement 2020 on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

NAICU President Barbara K. Mistick will lead a conversation focused on voter registration, voter education and get-out-the vote activities ahead of the November general election.

Member presidents, student affairs professionals, and student leaders are invited to learn about the resources on the Your Vote, Your Voice webpage, and best practices for campus-based civic engagement and voter registration activities in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, many doing so in a virtual environment.
