We witnessed historic turnout for youth voters ages 18–29 in the 2020 election, and it wouldn’t have been possible without all the tremendous work that each of you — our campuses and partners — did. While the college student vote and the youth vote are not the same thing, this is a great indicator. Thank you for helping to make voter participation a norm on college campuses!
— The ALL IN Team
This election cycle was also record breaking for ALL IN — we’ve now grown to more than 800 participating campuses! Thank you for your commitment to civic learning and democratic engagement in this election year and every year!
GA Election Runoff
Georgia will host its general election runoff for two senate seats on January 5, 2021. If a GA student turns 18 on or before January 5, they are eligible to vote in this election. Register to vote, verify your voter registration, request your absentee ballot and get informed, at allintovote.org.
Share Your Updated NSLVE One-Pager
Please send us your updated one-pager (sent to you by IDHE this fall in early October) and previous reports from the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE). Your campus may be eligible for a retroactive seal of recognition. Submit your NSLVE data to email@example.com.
APSA Essay Contest
Our friends at the American Political Science Association (APSA) are hosting an essay contest about students’ experiences working the polls. Students can submit a brief essay (400 words or less) about their experience for a chance to win a cash prize. Essays must be submitted by December 15, 2020.
Collecting Student Voter Stories
ALL IN and SLSV Coalition partners are interested in hearing about student voting experiences. If you know students who were unable to cast their ballot consider asking them to share their experience. We are also collecting remarkable voting stories at the same link. By gathering these stories, we hope to create more access and success for student voters to participate in future elections.
Youth Voting Data
The Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) at Tufts University has tracked and reported youth turnout data in the 2020 election. CIRCLE data suggest that 52%–55% of voting-eligible young people, ages 18–29, cast a ballot in the 2020 presidential election. Check out their work to learn more about the increase in youth participation.
