College student voting rates have increased dramatically in recent years, doubling from 2014 to 2018 and reaching nearly the same rate as the general population in the 2020 election after decades of lagging far behind. Earlier this year, a group of leading scholars, student leaders, and practitioner experts came together to form the Student Vote Research Network (SVRN) to explore new insights about how to get even closer to 100% student voter participation.
Join the SVRN on Tuesday, November 15 from 4:00-5:00 PM ET for the release of the State of the Student Vote Fall 2022 edition and a discussion on innovative strategies for reaching 100% student voter participation that were both implemented and researched during the 2022 midterm elections.
