The UNLV University Libraries and the UNLV Political Science Department present a panel discussion regarding the political process, how voting will impact public policy in Nevada and the topics that will be trending this election season, focusing especially on the Ballot Questions. The audience will receive information about how to access their sample ballot online and how to prepare to vote.
Dave Damore, Political Science professor, and Heidi Johnson, Social Sciences librarian, will moderate the panel. The four student panelists will give presentations about the issues on the ballot, and the moderators will facilitate discussion between the panelists and audience members. The purpose of the event is to educate student voters about the issues, to encourage them to vote and become more politically involved, and to encourage participation in other campus Debate events.

If students are interested in helping to promote voting and voter education among their peers, they may consider volunteering for the Campus Election Engagement Project, a national non-partisan project that helps America's colleges and universities get as many of their 20 million students as possible to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves, and turn out at the polls.
