The University of Maryland was named an inaugural “All In” Most Engaged Campus for Student Voting by a national nonpartisan initiative for its efforts to encourage student engagement in the democratic process.
The campus organization TerpsVote submitted its 2022 action plan to encourage student voting on behalf of the university to the “All In” Campus Democracy Challenge. Three hundred and forty-three other colleges and universities were also recognized by “All In” for their efforts.
“College student voter turnout has increased since 2016, and this increase has been driven by students. The All Campus Democracy Challenge is excited to expand our All In Student Voting Honor Roll to recognize these student voting champions across the country,” said Jennifer Domagal-Goldman, executive director of the challenge. “These students registered voters, served on their campus voting coalitions, spearheaded voter education efforts, advocated for campus polling locations and organized other voter engagement efforts to ensure their peers were confident and informed voters. We are excited to see what they continue to accomplish ahead of the 2022 midterms.”
