Get Ready for Election Season!
Illinois Campus Compact is excited to announce that we have partnered with the Campus Election Engagement Project. The Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) is a national non-partisan voter engagement project, which had a major impact in 2008 and 2012 and began addressing off year elections in 2013. CEEP helps America's colleges and universities get as many of their students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves, and turn out at the polls. Together with CEEP, we work through administrators, faculty, staff, plus student leaders, helping them use their key positions to engage their campuses. We focus on students because they historically vote at lower rates than other groups particularly in non-presidential elections. And because when they begin to participate, their habits of involvement can last a lifetime.
