Take Your Civic Engagement to the Next Level

Here’s what you need to know to be heard at the polls.

*If you are voting by mail, stop by the Center for Leadership & Community Engagement in Kathleen W. Rollins Hall for a free stamp! Be sure to request and send your vote-by-mail ballot early.

If you encounter problems voting, call the Democracy Project (407-691-1250) or contact the National Election Protection Hotline (1-866-OUR-VOTE).

2022 Midterm Election
Election Day: November 8th, 2022

Election Day (11/8) : The Democracy Project is offering a free shuttle bus service to and from the Winter Park 9th Grade Center polling location. This will run continuously from 7 am to 7 pm and will leave from Tars Plaza (the flagpole area on-campus). We will have snacks and drinks and candidate information for students. Please sign up for a timeslot here, but note that a reservation is not required (it just helps us with planning). Every student registered with their on-campus mailing address will be eligible to vote on election day at the Winter Park 9th Grade Center. If you are unsure of where you are registered, please check here. If you are registered outside of Florida, please use this resource to check your polling location: Where to Vote 

Early Voting (until 11/6): Please note that early voting is available until the 6th of November at the Winter Park Library.

What should you bring with you to the polls? 

Everyone is required to present a valid photo ID with a signature to prove identity at the polls. As a best practice, you may want to bring two forms of identification with you especially if your state ID is not from Florida.  Students may now request a new R-Card from campus safety with a signature box on it. This is free to students upon request and will allow for R-Cards to be used at polling locations. Information on other forms of valid ID can be found here. We also recommend taking a bottle of water with you on election day in case there are lines at peak times of the day.

Not sure who/what to vote for?

Attached here are QR codes that will take you directly to the web pages of important candidates in our district, as well as the web pages for the Supervisor of Elections if you would like to view a sample ballot.

Join Us After You Vote:

  • Raise Some Dough  - After you have cast your vote, members of the Rollins community may take their “I Voted!” sticker, and their R-Card to Blaze Pizza for a free drink with purchase. Additionally, 20% of the proceeds will go back to the Rollins College Democracy Project to help the organization!
  • Join us for Rollins Trivia Night, hosted by Curtis Earth from 7-8 pm in Dave’s Boathouse.  Trivia will be political and election-themed!
  • The Democracy Project will also be hosting an Election Results Watch Party  in Dave’s Boathouse from 8 pm to 11:30 pm. We will be supplying free food (including sliders, mac n cheese, and wings), fun activities, and a space to participate in democracy as a campus community! We hope that you can join us!

Voter Registration Drives

Rollins has an account with TurboVote, allowing students to sign up for election reminders and receive detailed information about the registration process online. We also partner with third-party voter registration organizations such as the Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office for in-person registration drives. Check your campus email or follow us on Instagram to see upcoming opportunities.  

Politics on Tap

(Dave’s Boathouse; last Thursday of every month; 5 PM – 6 PM)

This is an event where students, faculty, and staff come together to discuss politics in an informative and respectful manner. Topics for these events have included: immigration, women in politics, free speech and sports, and big pharma. To diversify our partnerships and engage students outside the social sciences, it is our goal to use Politics on Tap as an opportunity to explore topical interests related to the sciences and other fields with lower voter turnouts at Rollins
