Flagler Votes

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.

Show your #FlaglerVotes pride by getting a Custom Flagler Vote T-Shirt from the Flagler's Legacy store on St. George Street or online.

Review Your Sample Ballot

Did you know that you can prep before you vote? Be sure to review your sample ballot and even take yours with you when you cast your vote.

Find your Florida Supervisor of Elections' website or visit Campus Vote Project to find your sample ballot if you vote outside of Florida.
