The Pack the Polls Coalition

History and Purpose of Pack the Polls

Founded in 2016, Pack the Polls is a campus-wide coalition on voter engagement and education. The Pack the Polls coalition has three main missions:

  • Foster a coordinated impact by bringing together organizations, faculty, students, and staff from across the university and greater community that share similar goals of activating students to become civically engaged in upcoming elections.
  • Provide civic engagement education, activities, and centralized information to the NC State community.
  • Increase voter registration and election turnout using creative engagement tactics.
