Morgan Chance is an Outreach Fellow with FairVote. She grew up in Memphis, Tennessee and graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville with Bachelor’s Degrees in Political Science and English. At the University of Tennessee, Morgan served as an Ambassador and Scholar with the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy. As a Baker Ambassador, Morgan worked with the Knox County Election Commission to make the Baker Center an early voting and election day polling location for the 2016 Presidential Election. She also helped to register over 2400 students to vote before the presidential election. As a Baker Scholar, Morgan spent two years researching how voter identification laws have affected voters between the ages of 18 and 24 in Indiana, Kansas, and Tennessee.
Outside of the University of Tennessee, Morgan served as an intern for the Shelby County Election Commission, registering voters and working with the Administrator of Elections on precinct consolidation. She also served as an election official for the Election Commission for the 2016 State Primary and Shelby County General Election. When she is not talking about voting, you can find Morgan listening to her favorite band, Disturbed, or listening to her favorite comedian, John Mulaney. She is very excited to join the FairVote staff and work with people who care just as much about voting and elections as she does.
