OC Votes is a non-partisan website that explores the issues important to the 2020 election.

OC Votes—a clearinghouse for all the efforts on campus to promote engagement with the election season—is now live. This nonpartisan education series explores the issues important to understanding the complex election cycle.  

Visit OC Votes (www.oberlin.edu/oc-votes) for voter information, resources, and answers to all your questions as Election Day 2020 draws closer. Key initiatives on the website include:

  • Election issues, perspectives, and histories
  • How to register, engage and volunteer
  • Analysis of results—what does it all mean?
  • Peer groups on campus to join
  • Calendar of events
  • Involvement after the election, and keeping our momentum strong.

While COVID-19 may have curtailed traditional efforts to get out the vote, collaboration across campus on these efforts is at an all-time high this year. From current Voter Friendly Campus Coalition initiatives to register students and staff to vote, to Student Union Program Board events, to academic departments and co-curricular ‘election insights,’ our goal is to—borrowing from OC Athletics—‘Yeo the Vote!’  

To share information about an event you are organizing, please contact the Dean of Students office at 440-775-8462 or OCVotes@oberlin.edu.
