Nonpartisan Voting Information
Nonpartisan: not partisan; especially: free from party affiliation, bias, or designation (Merriam-Webster)
In a recent story for NPR, a researcher from Tufts University conducted “a survey of working-class youth, and found that nearly 20 percent of young people said they don't think they know enough to be able to vote” (Khalid 2018). As part of Flint Hills Technical College’s mission to promote “personal growth and preparation for professional and civic responsibilities;” the information and websites provided below are to encourage all students, faculty, and staff to have the opportunity to be knowledgeable voters (Mission 8). The websites and information are designated as nonpartisan (reference definition above) and are shared with you for the purposes of education. If you need assistance, have questions, or need more information- please feel free to contact the Director of Information Resources.
