Elon designated a ‘Voter Friendly Campus’ for the second time
Elon University was named a Voter Friendly Campus, one of 258 campuses in 38 states and the District of Columbia, by Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project and NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. The initiative recognizes institutions that have planned and implemented practices encouraging students to register and vote in the 2022 elections and the coming years. This is Elon’s second time receiving the designation.
The 2023 Voter Friendly Campus designation aims to bolster institutions’ efforts to help students overcome barriers to political participation – every year, not just during years featuring federal elections. Elon was evaluated based on a written plan for how it planned to register, educate and turn out student voters in 2022, how we facilitated voter engagement efforts on our campus and a final analysis of our efforts.
“This designation highlights the excellent work happening on campus to support students as they become active and engaged citizens,” said Carrie Eaves, associate professor of political science and policy studies. “We are thrilled to again be recognized for this important work.”
