National CEEP Spring News UpdateJonathan Romm
This spring has been a very exciting time for the Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP). We welcomed 12 student spring fellows are facilitating voter registration drives on campuses and distributing resources and information about the upcoming November elections. Fellows can be an integral part of a campus wide plan to help excite and motivate students around electoral engagement. In fact, CEEP has already begun working with your campuses to recruit and encourage students to apply to be a fall fellow.
CEEP has created a handful of state specific primary guides as well as talking points on how to use the guides. While many of the primaries are during the summer, there is still time to inform and educate students on how they can remain involved in the electoral process even when they are not in school. As we gear up for summer, our staff is looking forward to working with your schools to prepare for orientation, back-to-school events, and continuing to build campus wide coalitions.
Students are enthusiastic and eager to be involved. CEEP wants to help build, maintain, and grow the momentum on your campuses. We are actively working to distribute existing and new resources around the 2018 elections. CEEP has also expanded and hired staff to help engage schools in these states: Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Dakota, Tennessee, and West Virginia. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. As always, we thank you for your work and look forward to continuing our work around increasing electoral engagement.
