Congrats Auggies – Student Voting Rates Went Up

submitted by

Every four years the Institute for Democracy and Higher Education publishes reports on voting rates for colleges and universities, and the 2020 report just came out last week. Augsburg’s report shows that our student voting rate went up 3.7% from 2016 to 2020, and 77.3% of eligible Augsburg students voted compared to 66% of college and university students nationwide.

Let’s keep our numbers growing as we demonstrate high participation in this aspect of civic engagement. Remember: tomorrow is the last day to vote in the 2021 elections, and you can register the same day.
