Make Your Plan

When will you vote? What method will you use? Make sure you have a plan to cast your ballot and have your vote counted, and refer to the Hopkins Votes checklist if you need guidance.

The Democracy Project

Johns Hopkins scholars examine the past, present, and future of American democracy, looking for clear signs of peril, threads of hope, and perhaps a shared vision for a better, more inclusive republic

Hopkins Votes is a nonpartisan initiative that provides voter assistance and education to Johns Hopkins University faculty, staff, students, and the wider community. We are committed to facilitating access to the electoral process for all eligible voters, regardless of an individual’s political affiliation, location, voting method, or registration status.
