Take the pledge

Stanford students, faculty, and staff have redoubled efforts to encourage eligible students to vote. In the 2018 mid-term election, we increased precinct voter turnout by as much as 70 percent and we can do even better.

Sign on to join our efforts to help make civic engagement an integral part of Stanford’s culture.


Stanford students, faculty, and staff are working to build a stronger campus community to increase voter registration and engagement. All are encouraged to send us resources and campus event details to add to this page.
