CoPIRG student chapter volunteers helped register more than 13,000 students to vote. Now, using on-the-ground and on-line strategies, campaign volunteers are reaching out to their peers in classrooms, on computers and campus quads and urging them to cast a ballot. To date, the campaign has made 46,000 GOTV contacts.
The Student PIRGs’ New Voters Project has launched early voting campaigns in several states in an effort to help young people turn out to vote this Election Season. Since local partner, NCPIRG launched their get-out-the-vote efforts on campuses across the state, large initial turnout has been reported at the on-campus early voting sites.
