UAH designated as a Voter Friendly Campus for 2021-2022
UAH News, Russ Nelson:
"The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), part of The University of Alabama System, has been designated as a "Voter Friendly Campus" by the Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project (CVP) and the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA). UAH is one of over 231 campuses in 37 states and the District of Columbia to have achieved this designation as part of an initiative led by these national nonpartisan organizations. The designation is valid through December 2022.
The CVP and NASPA hold participating institutions accountable for planning and implementing practices that encourage their students to register and vote in the coming years. The mission of the Voter Friendly Campus designation is to bolster efforts that help students overcome barriers to participating in the political process.
"After a year of work on voting efforts on campus, our ChargersVote team is absolutely thrilled to have received this designation on behalf of UAH," says William Hargrove, who serves on campus as the Coordinator for Civic Engagement and Leadership in the Office of Student Life. "Additionally, we are excited to keep working to further institutionalize voting as a civic duty among our student body for the foreseeable future."
