Mildred Sainer Pavilion at New College

The first ever “VoteFest” at New College of Florida will be held Tuesday, February 11th from 11am-1pm. VoteFest will serve as a non-partisan mini resource fair allowing students to get registered to vote, to gain relevant information about the upcoming major election & census, and other information as it relates to civic, voter, and democratic engagement . Community members of the local area as well as the New College community will participate. Representatives from the Census Bureau will discuss the census, and a representative from the SRQ supervisor of elections to do the voter registration.

The ultimate goal of VoteFest is to engage students civically even if they are already registered by having organizations, people, staff, or faculty tabling with quick facts to help students understand multiple aspects of democracy. LWV SRQ will have a table at this event to publicize the availability of Vote411.
