BGSU Votes Resources


BGSU Votes is committed to a constant increase in student, faculty, and staff engagement in civic dialogue and voting. Each year the BGSU Votes team composes an action plan of goals, strategies, and activities to help BGSU work toward full voter participation.  Members of the BGSU Votes leadership team, coalition members from across campus, and various external organizations have contributed to the creation of this action plan.  It is a dynamic document and as more collaborations and partnerships are formed, more will be added to the plan.  To review our 2022 Action Plan and End of Year Report, visit the link below.
