International Student Voting 

Voting is an important duty in any country. Therefore, the right to vote overseas is a momentous privilege and should be exercised. Those eligible to participate in voting overseas, known as expatriate voting, are many, but one may face many restrictions in doing so. To facilitate your voter experience, the Center for Civic Justice compiled a list of regulations and restrictions by country and territory. We invite you to partake in your country’s elections and exercise your  right from wherever you are.

Follow the Dollar Resource Guide

The Follow the Dollar Resource Guide is the product of a Legacy Project by a member of the Student Leadership Team (SLT) aimed to discuss the connections between money in politics.  Legacy Projects are initiatives taken on by members of the SLT and interns of the CCJ based around their personal interests and passions. This in-depth, multimedia guide provides digestible information regarding the funding of presidential elections, dark-money, super PACs, philanthropy, advocacy, and much more. We hope you are able to Follow the Dollar with us through learning more about the influence of money on our democratic system.
