The Ambassador Handbook is the go-to guide for voter engagement on your campus. Before hosting any voter registration drives or other events, it is crucial that you become familiar with the contents of this manual. Ambassadors receive a printed copy of the Handbook annually, along with other supplies.
The Andrew Goodman Foundation recently partnered with BallotReady to create an online platform designed to help voters get educated on local issues. The tool was piloted by Vote Everywhere schools and partners in New Jersey ahead of the Gubernatorial race on November 7, 2017. Click here to check it out.
To combat low voter turnout, especially among traditionally marginalized populations, Vote Everywhere Ambassadors at Bard College created a voting guide for the tri-state area that details the voter registration process and explains voting issues specific to survivors of domestic violence.

Campus Vote Project, an AGF partner, develops state-specific guides to help students with voter registration activities. Ambassadors should become familiar with the voting laws that are most relevant to their campus demographics. Voter ID requirements, if any, are also discussed in each guide.
