OSU Votes

The Office of Student Life’s OSU Votes is a student-led movement to register, educate and encourage other students to vote. This nonpartisan group focuses on civic engagement at The Ohio State University.

OSU Votes is committed to providing students with the necessary information and materials needed to vote in every local and national election, while fostering a sense of engaged citizenship.

Early Voting Transportation

OSU Votes provided free transportation from campus to the Franklin County Board of Elections to participate in early voting for the November 2016 Election.

Information about other election day transportation opportunities will be available closer to those dates.
