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.

If you have a question about voting, submit it here! An Emory Votes representative will get back to you as soon as we can.
