Join the Campaign

The RAISE the Vote campaign’s primary goal is to provide political science faculty with specific tools for encouraging student registration, voting, and democratic engagement. One of the ways we hope to do that is by sharing the work of political scientists who either conduct research on issues relevant to political participation and voting, teach on related issues, and/or work in the classroom and on campus to encourage student civic engagement.

If you want to contribute a blog post to the campaign to be featured on PoliticalScienceNow.com and this website, send the following information to teaching@apsanet.org

  • Name, affiliation, contact info
  • Brief summary of post proposal (no more than a paragraph)
  • Preferred monthly theme to feature the post

Each month of the campaign features a theme, which covers a broad range of procedural and substantive issue areas, pedagogical practices, and campus-level strategies.
