To help youth voters participate in their democracy with confidence, Project Pericles joins hundreds of partners to celebrate National Voter Education Week (“NVEW”), a digital campaign to equip communities with all of the information they need to be informed, confident, and prepared voters.
Running this year from Monday, October 4th through Friday, October 8th, NVEW 2021 aims to help communities build on the 2020 election’s historic turnout levels - which were reached despite a global pandemic - by helping to spread voter education among our Periclean campuses, their communities, and other collaborators around the country.
National Voter Education Week helps voters bridge the gap between registering to vote and actually casting a ballot. During this week of interactive education, Project Pericles will help disseminate information to help voters find their polling location, understand their ballot, and make a plan to vote in person or by mail. Resources from NVEW are featured in the Project Pericles Voting Modules, a free online curricular resource for faculty to incorporate voter education and deliberative dialogue into courses across the curriculum. For more information, please visit the Project Pericles Voting Modules webpage.
