Wells College is pleased to announce a new partnership with Turbovote, a "one-stop-shop" voter registration and engagement service created by Democracy Works. Through a special registration site at wells.turbovote.org, members of the campus community can sign up for the service and use it to register to vote, request an absentee ballot, and track elections with text message and email reminders. As elections approach, students will receive all the information needed to vote in every election, including polling locations, election dates, information on laws, and deadlines. If online registration isn't available,
they’ll receive completed forms with stamped envelopes already addressed to the local election office.

The partnership was coordinated by Director of Campus Life for Diversity and Inclusion Latesha Fussell, and Wells unveiled the service during the recent Activism Symposium—providing students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to learn about Turbovote and sign up for the service.

Turbovote has 300 higher education partners and has served over a million voters in the past six years. Users are represented in all 50 states and in all major elections since 2010 as well as countless local elections. During the 2012 elections, 75% of first time voters who successfully registered through TurboVote and 80% of those updating their voting information turned out on Election Day.

 

Wells College promises a relevant liberal arts and sciences education. Intellectually challenging. Reinterpreted for today. Classroom teaching combined with hands-on learning. Wells graduates enter the world prepared for successful futures.
