Representatives Available to Register Your Students to Vote!  The University’s Center for Community Engagement & Service Learning has arranged for representatives from New Era Colorado, a local nonpartisan civic engagement organization, to be available to register your students to vote and share nonpartisan voting information (e.g., mail-in ballots, forms of identification acceptable for voting) for 5-10 minutes during your class. Representatives arrive 10 minutes before class to register early arrivals and wrap up quickly after checking students’ voter registration forms for completeness.

Please contact Keara Fenzel,, Denver lead organizer with New Era Colorado, to schedule a voter registration presentation during your class. Please contact the Center for Community Engagement & Service Learning at for any further voter registration questions.
