Write to Vote

The Write to Vote Project is a non-partisan initiative that promotes writing by college students, faculty, and others on the history and importance of voting rights. In Write to Vote classrooms, students write essays, op-eds, letters to editors, personal narratives, poetry, and other texts on topics related to voting and voting rights. Topics might include the women’s suffrage movement, voter suppression during Reconstruction, the effects of gerrymandering, and more.

More than 65 faculty members at 48 colleges and universities across the United States have joined onto the initiative, but we welcome anyone who would be interested in participating. The Write to Vote Project is non-partisan. Our goal is to support democracy, encourage civic engagement, and advance voting rights in the US and around the world.
