The Federal Higher Education Act requires colleges and universities to make a “good faith effort” to distribute voter registration materials to all students. We are committed to helping students change their registration to vote locally. We hope to encourage our campus community to participate in state/local politics as well as federal politics. We are passionate about getting students at the forefront of the legislative process.
In 2016, only 46.1% of youth (age 18-29) voted in the Presidential Election and only 19.9% voted in the Midterm Elections. Our goal is to have 80% of WCSU students registered to vote in preparation for the 2020 election and all elections there after.
