What is Western Votes?

Western Votes is non-partisan and interested in civic engagement and citizenship more than advocating for specific policies. If you are a student at Western and want to be politically engaged or want to see others politically engaged, we encourage you to join Western Votes!

Western Votes is Western's own chapter of the Washington Student Association, an organization that represents every public university in Washington State and advocates for changes that benefit students of higher education. Students in Western Votes come from diverse majors and political backgrounds. 


What are we currently working on?

  • Get Out The Vote (GOTV) efforts: Phonebanking, Trick-or-Vote, Print and Plant, Photo Booth
  • Local Voter Guide: an accessible, readable, and non-partisan guide to the propositions on the Whatcom County 2015 Ballot
  • 2015-2016 Legislative Agenda: creating proposals for what we will lobby on in Olympia this Winter
