Organization recognizes Kent State’s voter participation efforts

The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge has named Kent State as one of 394 colleges and universities to its list of ALL IN Most Engaged Campuses for College student voting. 

The challenge recognizes these institutions for making intentional efforts to increase student voter participation and completing these actions: 

-Participate in the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge.

-Shared 2020 NSLVE Reports with campus voting data with ALL IN.

-Developed and submitted a 2022 democratic engagement action plan with ALL IN.

-Have a current signatory to ALL IN’s Higher Education Presidents’ Commitment to Full Student Voter Participation.

In September, students helped other students register to vote.

The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge (ALL IN) is a national nonpartisan initiative of Civic Nation, a 501(c)(3) organization. The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge strives to change civic culture and institutionalize democratic engagement activities and programs on college campuses, making voter participation a defining feature of campus life.

ALL IN currently engages over 9 million students from more than 950 institutions in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

 Jennifer Domagal-Goldman, Executive Director of the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, said “College student voter turnout has increased since 2016, and this increase has been driven by students. The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge is excited to expand our ALL IN Student Voting Honor Roll to recognize these student voting champions across the country.” 

Lamar R. Hyton, Ph.D, senior vice president for student affairs was proud to see Kent State receive this recognition. “We are looking forward to keeping the momentum going into the next election cycle,” he said.
