Non-partisan collaboration UAAVotes elevates voter education and civic engagement
by Allie Hartman |
The UAA campus community is proud to present UAAVotes!
A non-partisan campus collaboration, UAAVotes aims to elevate voter education and civic engagement in the campus community to advance informed, purposeful democracy in Alaska.
Through education, engagement and events, UAAVotes programs offer Seawolves, families and friends the foundation of knowledge needed to participate in the democratic process and shape the future of our state.
Whether you are voting for the first time or the tenth, you may have questions about voting this fall. Visit the UAAVotes website for non-partisan, factual information about where and how to vote.
In partnership with the Campus Election Engagement Project, the UAAVotes Ballot Guide offers the facts about what positions and initiatives are on the ballot this fall. Non-partisan, fact-checked candidate comparisons are available for national candidates.
Follow @uaalife on Instagram to see how we’re engaging with Seawolves regularly online. From polls to quizzes to debriefs and testimonials, you can engage this election cycle wherever you are on your phone.
Sixty-seven percent of our audience believes that state elections have a greater impact on the day-to-day lives of Alaskans than national elections. What do you think?
Through Election Day, enjoy events centered around community engagement, education and development. Engage with purpose this fall and visit uaa.alaska.edu/vote to access these upcoming events:
