Stanford Votes

Multi-quarter part-time
Civic Engagement

StanfordVotes, which is a committee within Stanford in Government, works to increase the number of Stanford students registering to vote and participating in elections. Stanford students, faculty, and staff work together to build a stronger campus community around voter registration and engagement.

The many volunteer opportunities include:

  • staffing voter registration events
  • creating innovative ways of increasing the number of campus members who are registered to vote
  • publicizing upcoming elections
  • hosting opportunities for campus members to learn about election topics

For questions, please contact Cameron Lange or Emily Handsel.

"Through this experience, I learned that civic engagement can be as easy as finding something you're passionate about and chasing it. It demonstrated to me that Stanford is a place that prioritizes civic participation and seeks to educate global citizens, not just students."

Sean Casey, ’23, is studying economics and political science. His roles while at Stanford have included co-director of StanfordVotes; co-chair of the Day of Civic Service; co-founder of the Collegiate Institutions Voting in California (CIVIC) Coalition, student advisory board member of Every Vote Counts; board member of Stanford in Government; opinion columnist for the The Stanford Daily; program coordinator and tutor for the Robinson Community Learning Center; a peer advisor for the Haas Center for Public Service; a Cardinal Quarter Fellow; and a member of the Public Service Honor Society.
