This project will develop and test the impact of a COVID-safe creative intervention to educate students and encourage participation in the 2020 election. We will be designing and producing both an analog and digital “Voting Party in a Box” – a college-voting-specific kit that allows students to gather in small, COVID-appropriate groups to learn about and celebrate voting. As part of the national, non-partisan network mobilizing for November 3 – and the likely focus on vote-by-mail – we recognize the particular need for creative responses in this extraordinary time.
