New Voters Project
We believe that the full participation of young people in the political process is essential to a truly representative, vibrant democracy. Together young people have the power to elect the next generation of leaders who will fight for our shared vision of the future, but only if we vote. For the fall 2022 elections, we’re working with our campus communities to make it easier and more accessible for students to vote and we’re working with campus administrators to make voting and civic engagement more institutionalized in residence halls, class registration, and other aspects of student life.
