Augsburg University does not allow open solicitation in campus buildings, parking lots, or residence halls. Registered Augsburg Students may go door-to-door in the residence hall in which they live to register students to vote in local, state or national elections, and/or to advocate for political candidates who are running for local, state and national office. Candidates who have filed for office may access the residence halls per the Augsburg University Candidate access Policy, which is in accord with Minnesota Statute 211B.20. Consult the Student Guide, at http://www.augsburg.edu/studentguide/ for more details.
