Oberlin College named a voter-friendly campus

Elyria Chronicle-Telegram, Staff report:


"OBERLIN — For the third consecutive year, Oberlin College has been designated a "voter-friendly college" for its efforts to get students involved in the political process.


The designation was given by the Fair Elections Center's Campus Vote Project and NASPA Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education.


The initiative holds its more than 200 participating campuses accountable for taking steps to encourage students to register and vote. Oberlin College was evaluated on how it turned out student voters in 2020, and its on- and off-campus voter engagement efforts.


They included Yeo the Vote, which sought to register all student athletes, and OC Votes, which provided space to learn about ways to take part in the democratic process, and ways to learn about complex issues raised by candidates."
