Quad Day - Voter Registration

Quad Day is coming! 40,000 students move into Champaign-Urbana in August. Help us register a fraction of them to ensure the Blue Wave hits Champaign County.

Last year we registered 1,000 students, our goal this year is 3,000 voter registrations completed. Yes, that is a very, very high goal but with enough volunteers, we can do it.

Sign up to volunteer for Quad Day voter registration.

Learn to Canvass

  • Champaign Public Library, Robeson Pavilion (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The People's Agenda is targeting precincts across our county to register voters, and we need your help. Join us to learn how to engage voters through canvassing as part of our Adopt-A-Precinct program. We'll cover the basics of canvassing and role-play different scenarios you might encounter talking with voters.

If you attended the Blue Wave training in June this is continuation of that. If you are interested in canvassing in general, that’s great but this training is specifically for the Adopt-A-Precinct program.

The 8/18 and 8/23 trainings will be the same. You need only attend one of these sessions.

Please sign up to let us know how you'd like to be involved with Adopt-A-Precinct.

Flyer the Quad

Flyer the Quad

We ordered 5,000 flyers, yes - 5,000. Now we need you to help get them into the hands of students to make sure they know what their voting options are.

It's quick, it's easy, and most importantly - it's effective! We have an info flyer, you hand it to the students, tell them in the Union where to go vote, they vote. Boom - done.

This is an outdoors, on your feet activity on the UIUC Quad, so please plan accordingly.

P.S. We will be working out of the Ebel table. This DOES NOT mean you have to hand out Ebel lit. You don't have to hand out any campaign specific literature. The flyer we made has no candidate names, just voting info. Kyle and the Ebel Campaign are just gracious and allowing us to use their table.

Sign up to flyer the quad.

Textbank the students and GOTV

Textbank the students and GOTV

We have phone numbers for over 1,000 students that we registered to vote on Quad Day - this is wonderful! But now we need your help to text or phone bank them to make sure they know about early voting on campus the week of March 13th.

Script, instructions, training all provided - we just need you and your phone. Please help us out and do a shift!

There is free, close parking to the McKinley Foundation.

P.S. The current County Clerk estimates less than 200 students will vote on campus for this entire election. Contacting these 1,000 students will go a long way to making sure they are taken seriously as voters in Champaign County.
