Invite the Voter Engagement Team to Speak to Your Class

Chapman University’s Voter Engagement Team needs your help to spread the word and encourage students to vote. 

The Voter Engagement Team, part of the University’s Civic Engagement Initiatives, will send team members to speak for 5-10 minutes in classes across campus. These “lightning talks” are designed to promote voter registration and engagement for Chapman students, leading up to the March California primary election.

Sign Up for “Lightning Talks”

If you are a faculty member interested in having the Voter Engagement team come and speak to your class, fill out the interest form and be sure to share with your department and colleagues.

Chapman will be serving as a vote center this Spring. A vote center is a polling place that combines multiple precincts which makes voting convenient for those who are far from their local polling place. The lightning talks will hopefully inspire students to register so that they can participate at the campus vote center.

From Saturday, Feb. 29 through Tuesday, Mar. 3, Chapman will serve as a vote center open to all Orange County voters. The lightning talks aims to inspire students to register and participate in the upcoming election


Please email if you would like more information about any of the efforts underway for spring 2020 or if opportunities for collaboration come to mind. 

Shishei Tsang is coordinating the Classroom Lightning Talks, you can reach her at if you will be teaching and would like to host a short presentation about the registration process in your class (please include the name of your class, meeting days/times, and location).
