Worcester State on Best Colleges for Student Voting Honor Roll

September 17, 2020
By: WSU News

Worcester State was one of 157 colleges and universities nationwide named to the Washington Monthly Best Colleges for Student Voting Honor Roll.

Washington Monthly used information from the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, and The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) at Tufts University, which calculates registration numbers and turnout rates for participating campuses, allowing schools to track their progress.

According to the Washington Monthly, “The listed schools have met multiple criteria. They have submitted an ALL IN action plan in 2018 and 2020. They’ve signed up to receive NSLVE data about their own campus registration and turnout rates. And they’ve made both their 2016 and 2018 NSLVE data available to the public. They have, in short, shown a repeated commitment to increasing student voting and have been transparent about the results.”

    This is so awesome!
    I am a parent of WSU and could not be more proud and happy that your taking this issue on as important and critical for our young people.
    I hope WSU will continue to register students and encourage them to vote.
    I noticed on your calendar for November 3rd it is the last day for add/drop for fall classes.
    Can you also add VOTE on that day on the official school calendar?
    This is such an difficult and unsettling time for our young people. To have the adults in their lives encourage them to vote and communicate to them that their vote matters is so important. Thank you for all you do!
