2020 Voter Friendly Campus Report

Posted by Voter Friendly Campus on December 14, 2021

The Voter Friendly Campus designation program was started through a partnership between Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project and NASPA’s NASPA LEAD Initiative in 2016. This partnership was formed as a tool to support higher education institutions fulfilling the requirements of the Higher Education Act of 1965, which necessitates that institutions distribute voter registration forms to their students. Due to the lack of instructions and guidance regarding this requirement, the Voter Friendly Campus designation process was developed in an effort to further the work of the Students Learn Students Vote coalition in creating more measurable and manageable guidelines for institutions to follow in order to create a more voter-friendly campus.

The Voter Friendly Campus program helps institutions develop democratic engagement action plans that coordinate administrators, faculty, and student organizations in civic and electoral engagement.

Learn more about the program, the accomplishments of the most recent cohort, and check out the 2020 Voter Friendly Campus Report.

To get your campus involved with the program in 2022 submit the Statement of Interest Form by 01/31/22 (priority deadline).
