Row The Vote

 

Row the Vote is an initiative dedicated to educating, empowering, and increasing the number of student voters on the University Minnesota Twin Cities campus. We need the help of student leaders across campus to educate their peers and encourage civic engagement among other students. With the 2020 election taking place during a global pandemic, our goal is to communicate different voting formats to students. We want to ensure that their votes for important local, state, and federal offices, including the Presidential office, are counted. 

 

We are recruiting Row the Vote Ambassadors, students who want to make a difference on campus. Ambassadors should be willing to dedicate approximately one hour per week from mid-August to mid-November to nonpartisan voter registration initiatives by sharing social media posts, participating in trainings, and contacting their personal networks to ensure high voter turnout on Election Day. 

 

If you are interested in being a Row the Vote Ambassador, please fill out this form. Row the Vote will provide you with training materials, virtual check-in’s, and access to digital spreadsheets in order to track voter outreach efforts. Row the Vote Ambassadors will complete an initial 1-hour training session via Zoom, then a 15-minute check-in with a Row the Vote team leader once every two weeks until the November 3rd election. Throughout their time as an Ambassador, they will be asked to share voting related information on their personal social media pages and text a list of up to 100 people in their networks to answer questions about the voting process. Ambassadors will not be asked to contact any students they do not know or speak to anybody over the phone if they are not comfortable doing so.
