The Study Abroad and Vote! Toolkit includes:
Overseas Voter Registration and Ballot Request Widget
Available free of charge to study abroad programs for use on school websites. Offer your US Citizen students abroad the possibility to register to vote and request their ballot directly from your website!
Here’s how to add interactive service value to your own site, specifically for overseas student voters. The Overseas Vote “widget” tool can be installed in minutes and put the registration and ballot request wizard at your students’ fingertips – without leaving your website.
The Overseas Vote Widget will enable your study abroad program to increase the accessibility of voting to American citizen students abroad. You can now impact voter turnout directly from you own website! For access to the Overseas Vote Widget proceed to the ”Request Access” form on the US Vote Civic Data website.
