CBS Democracy Project

Register to Vote

Minnesota has the highest voter turnout in the country. Your voice is important for the upcoming midterm election! Register online by Oct.16th and avoid the same day registration line at the polls on election day. If you run out of time, don’t forget that Minnesota allows same day voter registration. You can also request an absentee ballot in advance and vote early by mail.


Attend the Civic Engagement as a Scientist event
What does active citizenship look like as a science student? Join fellow CBS students, staff and faculty as they discuss how science and policy intersect. Food will be provided. Tues. Oct. 30th from 5-6:30pm in Mayo 3-100.  RSVP here.

Tell us why you’re voting
Stop by the 3-104 MCB waiting area to write your response to the question “Why I’m voting” and pick up some stickers and voter resources!
