NSLVE deadline extended through August 1st
Our friends at Tufts’ Institute for Democracy & Higher Education have extended the deadline for college and universities to sign up for the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE)!
Colleges and universities who are not already participating in NSLVE can sign up now through August 1 in order to receive their 2012 and 2014 voter registration and turnout data ahead of this year’s election. They can expect to receive their reports by the end of September.
You can view NSLVE’s list of Participating Campuses to see if your college or university is already a part of the study. If you are already participating, but you don’t know who has access to the report, you can fill out the inquiry form found here.
We cannot emphasize enough how informative NSLVE reports are for campuses. These reports break down voting rates for each campus by age group, education level, gender, race/ethnicity, field of study, and voting method. Here is a sample NSLVE report, in case you are not familiar with them.
Again, this is a free report for campuses and they do not have to do anything other than sign an authorization form in order to receive this report. We’ve included steps below that you can share with college administrators on how to sign up.
Interested in signing up for NSLVE? It’s easy!
STEP 1: Download the authorization form here (it will be valid through August 2018)
STEP 2: Sign the form and choose one person on your campus to be the report recipient (typically, a President, Vice President, Dean of the college, Provost, Registrar or Institutional Research Director signs the form, but this is always unique at each campus)
STEP 3: Email a scanned copy of the form to firstname.lastname@example.org
