Emory Votes

Your vote is your voice, and Emory takes seriously its responsibility to help you express it. The Emory Votes Initiative fosters a more engaged campus by providing nonpartisan voter information, supporting voter turnout, and empowering our community with credible resources. Young people are traditionally underrepresented in civic life. EVI helps set active civic engagement habits early in adulthood so all students graduate as lifelong involved global citizens.

Emory as an Election Polling Site

EVI is excited to help support the voting precint coming to the Atlanta campus! We are looking for volunteers to help with tabling, sign-waving, being a poll worker and more. For the upcoming 2022 primary election ahead of the midterms, early voting runs from May 2-May 20 and election day is on May 24. Please email EVI Program Coordinator Hannah Gebresilassie at hgebres@emory.edu to get more involved and volunteer. Read latest aricles here:
