    American Democracy Project participating campuses have undertaken an array of voter projects and activities designed to increase the number of college and university students who will accept the most fundamental obligation of a citizen in a democracy – casting informed votes for candidates standing for public office. 

    The following is a collection of information, events, materials and toolkits intended to help college and university campuses involve students in local, state and national elections.
