Politics and Voting

If you are interested in learning more about the City of Richmond's local government, consider attending a local government event, such as 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 URGOV.


The CCE, in conjunction with departments and student organizations across campus, hosts a series of programming during each election season.

Voter Registration on Campus

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