We invite you to celebrate National Voter Registration Day with Harvard Votes Challenge in the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at 6pm ET on Tuesday, September 22nd.

The fall elections face unprecedented challenges of administering voting during a global pandemic,  maintaining public health protocols while planning for a substantial increase in absentee voting. Across the country, Secretaries of State are in the center of this historic moment and we welcome two public servants, a Republican and Democrat, who knows these responsibilities first hand to discuss these contemporary challenges.

Trey Grayson ’94, Secretary of State, Kentucky (2004-2011), Director, Institute of Politics (2011-2014)

The Harvard Votes Challenge is a nonpartisan initiative that strives to build a civic culture at Harvard University by increasing voter registration and participation among students, staff, and faculty. In Fall 2018, the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation and Institute of Politics launched the Harvard Votes Challenge to promote student voter registration and turnout across Harvard. Make a plan to vote at voteschallenge.harvard.edu.
