Flagler Votes is a nonpartisan campus initiative created to provide students with the necessary resources to register to vote and cast their ballots in upcoming elections.
At Flagler College, our core values call us to exemplify citizenship on our campus and our community. One of the most important ways you can demonstrate citizenship is to participate in the election process.
You have the power to make a difference.
