CIRCLE (the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning & Engagement) recently received a grant to study college student voting rates. 260 universities and colleges have already signed up including 43 American Democracy Project member institutions.
The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) presents an unprecedented opportunity for your campus to learn in aggregate numbers:
- How many of your students are eligible to register to vote
- How many registered and/or voted, and where (locally or elsewhere)
- The way your students voted (regular or absentee ballot)
By participating in this study, your campus will also help build a national database for future research. CIRCLE will be working with de-identified student lists, so your students’ privacy rights are fully protected. This is not a survey!
If you are interested, you can also correlate voting with specific demographic information such as age, gender, race/ethnicity, field of study, and class level. CIRCLE has also been able to provide peer comparisons by Carnegie classification.
To join the study, you must sign up by April 10th 2014.
NSLVE is offering ADP campuses the chance to learn more about what you can do with this data and share what information you would like to know in the future. Take advantage of this opportunity and join this conversation by attending a free webinar TODAY, Friday, March 21 at 2 p.m. Eastern.
