CAMPUS TAKEOVER DURING COVID-19

We are proud to build on our work from previous years to make this the biggest Campus Takeover event yet. Last year, we had more than 550 campuses celebrate National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) with us and we are expecting many more this year!

Of course, we are thinking through how we can continue to support our partners while we learn what our campuses may look like this September. Whether we are operating in-person, online, or a combination of the two, Campus Takeover will provide the support to ensure the success of your NVRD event.

Right now, we are listening to our partners’ concerns and updates to learn how we can best help you all in September. As we learn more, we will consider adjustments to our plans so partners can still have a huge impact on September 22nd. We’re looking at special webinars and toolkits on digital outreach strategies for local groups, requesting absentee mail-in ballots, and more.

Democracy can, will, and must go on despite the trying circumstances we’re seeing now. Our goals for this year’s NVRD remain lofty and our purpose remains clear. And we feel fortunate to have so many of you right there alongside us.
