Election@Bard Statement on COVID-19
With New York Primaries behind us, the Election@Bard Team is looking forward towards the Fall Semester. E@B is committed to registering and engaging students in the coming months and we promise to adapt to whatever safety precautions are put in place. It is our priority to ensure that members of the Bard community can continue to engage safely during this time whether that be through absentee ballots or voting in-person while practicing social distancing. More updated action plans will be coming soon as Bard receives guidelines from the New York State Government on the re-opening process.
As Election@Bard prepares for the November election please don't hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our social media networks.
The Election at Bard Team
Voting is one of the most fundamental rights...
...in a democratic society and we encourage all students to exercise the right to vote. The initiative facilitates voter registration for students, provides information about candidates, hosts forums in which candidates and students can meet, and protects the rights of students to vote and have their votes counted. Since 2014, the initiative has been led annually by Bard’s Vote Everywhere Ambassadors, undergraduate students selected by the Center for Civic Engagement and the Andrew Goodman Foundation.
