POL 426

What does it take to increase youth voting in 2020? Students will collaboratively design, implement, and evaluate concrete interventions to register and turn out young Americans. Interventions might provide information on how to vote, explain issues at stake, activate social relationships or identities, work with community groups, motivate by entertaining, or highlight how voting matters. Students will read existing studies, consider what is effective, apply it, and evaluate it. Most of the work is in small groups. Planning and implementation will be completed before Reading Period. This course is faculty guided but student led.
