USD Votes Events

One great way to get informed and critically engage with the issues that confront us today is to attend events on campus. Everyone is welcome to all of these events. (Registration is required for a few.)

Because of the current situation, these events will be held virtually.

On September 22, everybody will be encouraged to make sure they are registered to vote!
