Pacific University students, employees, alumni, parents and friends are invited to participate in Chalk the Vote!, a celebration of legislation that expanded voting rights to populations previously excluded.

Oregon Women's History Consortium has launched this special project, in partnership with the Oregon Historical Society. Chalk the Vote! celebrates five legislative changes, including the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment, which removed restrictions of race, color or prior servitude, and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which removed sex as a restriction.

Participants are invited to celebrate Chalk the Vote! on sidewalks where they live. Once you have completed your sidewalk chalk creation, snap a photo and post to social media. Make sure to tag @PacificU, @PacificUniversityAlumni and @PacU.CGE and use hashtags #PacificChalk and #ChalkTheVote.
