Apply to be an OSU Votes Ambassador

As an OSU Votes Ambassador, you can join a movement to increase the number of college students making their voices heard in local, state, and national elections. Being an OSU Votes Ambassador is a great opportunity for Ohio State undergraduates to directly impact the level of civic engagement on campus. OSU Votes is a nonpartisan organization led by students as a part of the Office of Student Life and works to register, educate and encourage other students to vote. The application cycle for the 2022-2023 OSU Votes Cohort will open in December!

  • Registering Ohio State students to vote at tabling and other campus events
