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.


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.


For any other questions about voting or election day, please feel free to reach out to us via email, or send us a message on Instagram at @democracyprojectrollins
