Get Your Nonpartisan Voter Guides

Our friends at the Campus Election Engagement Project have created a series of nonpartisan voter guides for most of the big Senate and Gubernatorial races around the country. The guides combine data from Project Vote Smart and other reliable sources to show you where the candidates stand on a variety of important issues.

These guides are a great tool for your get-out-the-vote efforts. One reason that many students give for choosing not to vote is because they feel like they don’t know enough about the candidates to make an informed choice. Handing out these voter guides is one way to help them find the information they need.

You can download the guides for your state from the CEEP website.

Bring Us to Your Campus

It’s still early in the fall, but we’re already starting to set our training schedule for the winter and spring. Now’s a great time to start thinking about bringing us to your campus next term.

Some of the services we can provide for your student government include:

Retreats – We can facilitate a retreat to help your student government prepare for the spring term. We’ll help you brainstorm ideas, come up with strategies, and flesh out a detailed action plan.

Skills Trainings – Your members don’t always come to student government with all of the tools they need to be successful. We can come train them on key skills like how to run effective committee meetings, how to plan a big event, and how to do effective publicity.

Lobby Days – The spring is when many state legislatures make decisions about higher education funding and other critical issues. We can help you plan and carry out a lobby day at the state house so that students from your campus can speak directly to decision makers.

Campaign Trainings – We can help you plan your big projects for the spring and give you the skills to carry them out. Whether you plan to tackle financial aid funding or sexual assault prevention or campus sustainability, we can set you up to succeed.

Please contact us today to get more information on our services and what we can do for you.

Get Our Student Vote Toolkit

Student_Vote_Toolkit_coverThe election is just two months away, which means that voter registration season is upon us.

That’s why we’ve published our new Student Vote toolkit for student governments, which explains the ins and outs of how to run an effective nonpartisan voter registration and get-out-the-vote drive on your campus.

The toolkit is based on the experience of the Student Government Resource Center and our partners working on hundreds of campuses in recent election cycles. We hope you’ll find these resources as useful as we have.

We’ve also included chapters on how to build a coalition, generate visibility, work with the local election registrar, and more.

Download the PDF today and share it with the rest of your student government.

What Our Clients Are Saying

"The best thing about the Student Government Resource Center's training is that it teaches your student government to act. Instead of just talking about problems, their trainers showed our members how to move toward concrete, achievable solutions."
