When are the primary elections? How do I register to vote? What is an absentee ballot? All of these questions and more are founding pillars to the new campus initiative, Lasell Votes.
Lasell Votes is a nonpartisan initiative working to increase voter engagement, awareness and education both on and off-campus. The goal of this initiative is to help students identify their political voice as a part of who they are and be able to do so in a safe environment.
