As a Buff, you play a role in the well-being of your community. A great way to get more involved and make change in your community is to participate in elections. There are elections every year, both at the campus level through CU Student Government (CUSG) as well as local, state and national elections. You can make a difference by voting in all elections you’re eligible to participate in.
With midterm elections coming up quickly, I sat down with Rachel Hill, CUSG internal tri-executive, Lucie Nguyen, CUSG student affairs tri-executive, and Sawyer Bundgaard, CUSG chief of staff, to talk about voting. We had a great conversation about the influence that college students can have on elections, how to encourage peers to vote and more.
Here are some takeaways from our conversation and voting resources to help you prepare for upcoming elections.
