Flex Your Right 2021: How To Be Civically Engaged


The Cal Poly community has an essential role in influencing the decision-making process at the local, state, and federal levels.

ASI Student Government leads an annual Flex Your Right campaign aimed at getting students registered to vote using their San Luis Obispo or home address to ensure the campus community’s civic agency. You can even register to vote—or update your registration status—in several different languages on California’s Online Voter Registration website.

Cal Poly students have had a history of involvement during Flex Your Right registration drives. In 2018 and 2019, Cal Poly ASI Student Government registered more students to vote than any other university in California; the numbers totaled over 3,000 students in 2018 and over 2,000 in 2019. In 2020, again, Cal Poly ranked among the highest universities in the CSU system in student voter registration.

Civic engagement goes beyond elections. There are opportunities to exercise your civic agency on campus with Student Government; attend a Board of Directors Meeting, University Union Advisory Board meeting, or even attend office hours with the ASI President.

There are even ways to get involved in the greater San Luis Obispo community.

From voicing your opinion at a meeting to helping register people to vote, saying civically engaged in your community can come in many different forms. To stay updated on the variety of ways you can stay involved on campus and in the community, visit our Civic Engagement resource page.
