Texas State named “Voter Friendly Campus” for second consecutive cycle
For the second consecutive election cycle, Texas State University has been designated a “Voter Friendly Campus” by a national nonpartisan initiative.
The designation is based on Texas State’s nonpartisan, university-wide programming and events that encouraged students to register and vote in the 2022 elections and beyond. The Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project (CVP) and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education previously named the university a Voter Friendly Campus following the 2020 election cycle.
“I am thrilled that Texas State received the Voter Friendly Campus designation for the second major election cycle in a row,” said Jessica Myers, a senior political science major and Campus Vote Project Democracy Fellow who spearheaded the efforts. “I am so proud of the Texas State community for staying engaged throughout the midterms season, and of all the stakeholders and organizations that poured their resources and effort into educating them and getting them involved.
“Voting is tough—our system is complicated, and it’s hard to parse out what you need to know or when everything’s going down,” she said. “But our double achievement proves that Texas State is consistently dedicated to helping students better understand it, and tools like Vote411.org by the League of Women Voters were vital.”
