PSU Votes Ambassador
PSU Votes Ambassadors are an important part of Penn State's nonpartisan PSU Votes program and help develop initiatives and materials to engage students in the voting process in coordination with the PSU Votes Advisory Committee.
Ambassadors educate their peers on how to register to vote, how to acquire nonpartisan information on candidates and issues, and the process of voting. Ambassadors provide brief presentations and workshops in classes, student organization meetings, and residence hall communities. They also provide tabling and other opportunities for voter registration and education at events and locations on and off campus.
Ambassadors are expected to dedicate at least 30 hours per semester to PSU Votes activities and training.
To apply to become a PSU Votes Ambassador, complete the online form for the 2022-2023 academic year by August 1, 2022.
