“'I think due to WebsterVOTES, students are reminded of how important it is to vote,' Sturr said.
After the effort to encourage student voting in the 2020 election, Webster University has been nationally recognized as a Voter Friendly Campus this month. This recognition comes from Fair Elections Center’s Campus Vote Project, which aims to increase, encourage and normalize student voting.
