Politics and Voting

If you are interested in learning more about the City of Richmond's local government, consider attending a local government event including a Richmond City Council or School Board meeting. You can also learn more about local government and local, state and national races at the student-run website


The CCE, in conjunction with departments and student organizations across campus, hosts a series of programming during each election season. You can learn all about our programming at the We the People section of our website. During this election, we are cultivating spaces to consider critical questions about what makes a healthy democracy in a series of dicsussions and dialoges called "We the People". 

Voter Registration on Campus

Voter Registration Forms will be available for pick-up at Boatwright Memorial Library and completed forms may be dropped off in the lockbox at the front desk of Boatwright.

You can learn more about registering to vote, absentee voting, your polling place and more at our Voting Guide


RVAGOV is a student-led initiative to share resources about local government.
