Vote 2020

Events and programs to celebrate democracy and get you ready to vote in November!

In the lead-up to the November 3, 2020 elections in the U.S., UMMA is partnering with several organizations across The University of Michigan campus to host public programs and events to help you make your voice heard on voting day. 

Upcoming Events

Register to Vote at UMMA

Starting Mid-September, U-M students, faculty, and staff can register to vote and pick up or drop off your absentee ballot at UMMA. Or, watch the Clerk's office do the work of managing the election through the glass walls of UMMA's Stenn Gallery.

The Creative Campus Voting Project, a nonpartisan effort to energize and increase voting among college students, has launched Ten Tuesdays — a creative campaign to send students a weekly, action-oriented email leading up to election day. For the ten Tuesdays leading up to November 3, the Creative Campus Voting Project is sending out a newsletter as well as posting on social media on topics on democracy, voting, and justice in order to spark community conversations that will take center stage in the upcoming election.

Each Tuesday until the election, UMMA’s Student Engagement Council (or SEC) is posting blog articles about voting. Read more below! And if you’re interested in joining the SEC, find more information here.

SparkVotes Party

The SparkVotes 'party in a box' is a fun package that lets you and your friends gather virtually to celebrate voting and get yourselves prepared. The box includes games and activities that will help you stay connected, and feel confident about the voting process. The games have been designed for 6-8 players (including you!) divided into two teams. For maximum fun, we recommend aiming for 5-7 guests. Sign up to host or co-host a party to receive a free box!
