LaCrosse Tribune, Staff report:
"Campus registration days. A friendly march to City Hall to register to vote. Voting awareness. All three were among the reasons the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is one of more than 230 campuses in 37 states and the District of Columbia designated as a “Voter Friendly Campus.”
The initiative, led by national nonpartisan organizations Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project and NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, held participating institutions accountable for planning and implementing practices that encourage their students to register and vote in 2020 elections and beyond.
