Get Out the Vote Social Impact Design Challenge

A Collaborative Effort by Arizona Design Students

Design Educators are encouraged to share this collaborative design challenge with students centered around voter registration and voting. This design challenge can be implemented as a class assignment, extra credit, or a student group project. It includes a presentation with both the challenge details and a lesson on best practices for motivating non-voters. Feel free to add further design constraints to meet your objectives and forward to colleagues.
