 About Harvard Votes Challenge at Harvard Kennedy School  

In a strong democracy, citizens participate in political processes, and as a school for public leaders, we should not just encourage that participation, we should model it. This is why the Harvard Kennedy School is proud to participate in the Harvard Votes Challenge, a university-wide competition between participating schools that seeks to increase voter registration among eligible students, faculty, and staff. The Ash Center, a co-founder of the Harvard Votes Challenge in 2018, is the home for the Challenge at HKS. 

Students, faculty, and staff interested in getting involved with the Challenge are encouraged to reach out to Teresa Acuña, Ash Center Democratic Governance Program Associate Director, at teresa_acuna@hks.harvard.edu.
