Voting Outside the Polling Place: Vote-by-Mail, Absentee Voting & Other “Vote-at-Home” Options

In 2020, like every election year, it's important to make your voice heard, even if you can’t make it to the polls in person. Join us for a conversation with William Rosenberg, Professor of Political Science at Drexel University, about the ins and outs of voting at home options, like voting by mail, absentee voting and early voting. Attendees will learn about the benefits and challenges of each, as well as the political implications for the 2020 Presidential election.   


This event is part of the Drexel Libraries' Countdown to Vote speaker series and Drexel Votes, which seek to encourage the entire Drexel University community to become registered voters, educated and engaged citizens, and active supporters of the candidate of their choice.

Zoom information will be provided to all registrants 24 hours in advance of the event. Contact Communications Manager Stacy Stanislaw at svs22@drexel.edu with any questions.
