Maricopa Promotes Voter Registration
Thanks to federal legislation, U.S. colleges and universities assume an active role in efforts to encourage voter registration. All efforts on campus to register voters must be non-partisan. The college will provide one to two (1‑2) tables and several chairs. Location is the Student Center (SC) East Patio for highest exposure to walking traffic.
In addition, candidate forums or town hall meetings are permitted with two (2) weeks’ notice and space availability provided all sides are afforded equal opportunity to appear. Other activities within the scope of the academic curriculum designed to educate students on elections issues are also permitted.
- Prior notice must be provided to the Coordinator Facilities, (480) 423-6506, no fewer than two (2) days before conducting voter registration on campus. Volunteers must check-in and show a personal form of legal identification at the Faculty Office Building (FOB) each day on campus prior to soliciting registration. Volunteers will wear a badge provided by the office throughout the duration of his/her time on campus.
- Volunteers will be directed to the Student Center East Patio and be provided tables and chairs, unless otherwise specified by the college for a special event. Space is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Volunteers must remain within a five (5) foot radius of the above designated location. Volunteer will not in any way stop the flow of traffic, approach students or employees or disrupt the college environment. Students and employees may approach the volunteers of their own accord.
- Volunteer may place non-partisan banners or signs on the table(s) to encourage interest. Banners and signs may not be adhered to any surface.
