What is Western Votes? 


We are the volunteer student organization that works to ensure that other students on Western’s campus are registered to vote, knowledgeable about elections, voting, and then active in politics. Western Votes hosts the on campus voter registration drive each year. Western Votes also helps with planning, organizing, and participating in trips to Olympia and on-campus political rallies.
