HEY STANFORD 

ATHLETICS,
IT'S TIME TO 
VOTE

As student-athletes at the #1 athletic program in the country, we're taught to be trailblazers. Now, it's time to lead when it comes to civic engagement.

 

WHY

Democracy is not a spectator sport. The politicians and policies we choose in the 2020 election cycle will affect us every day, not just as U.S. citizens, but also as members of a student-athlete community. Our elected officials will make determinations on issues like:

  • Should student-athletes be paid? Receive compensation for NIL?

  • What are the free speech rights of a professional or student-athlete?

  • How should athletics departments around the county implement Title IX?

Voting affects you, your teammates, and your communities—athletic and otherwise. Do your part and get registered to vote with our partners at StanfordVotes.

"Before this year, I just believed that I never had a say in the political process. However, after talking to my teammates, I've learned that I can use my voice to facilitate positive change. I'm proud to be casting my first ballot for the November 3rd election."

“Just like you make your own life better by surrounding yourself with good people, voting gives you the chance to make the lives of the people in your country and community better by electing good people to your government.”
