EphVotes is Williams College’s first-ever voter outreach organization. Our mission is to promote voter registration, turnout, and civic engagement on campus. By bringing together students, faculty, and staff in a nonpartisan manner, EphVotes hopes to increase campus registration and voting rates and make it as easy as possible for every Eph to vote. Whether an experienced community organizer or someone new to the concept, we welcome everyone into our big tent.
Note: EphVotes is a nonpartisan organization, unaffiliated with any political party or candidates. We also note that not all members of our community have the privilege of voting in elections, and support all efforts to expand the franchise. Lastly, we recognize that voting is not the cure to all of the United States’ deep-rooted issues and that other forms of civic engagement and activism are necessary to affect change.
