Voting Rights & Voter Engagement
BLUEPRINT: Turning Voters Out at FAMU. Florida A&M University YP4 Fellows helped register hundreds of new students to vote on their campus of 11,000 students. After their voter registration efforts were complete, the Fellows worked together in conjunction with Working Assets, a socially responsible business, to help put together an event called Party at the Polls. The event was held at the polling place and was designed to encourage students to vote on Election Day. Students who voted were invited to attend a party that had a DJ with hip-hop and R&B music, food, and plenty of people to hang out with. During the course of the day approximately two hundred students participated in the party!
