University of Delaware students show their civic pride during National Voter Registration Day, which took place on the Green on September 28, 2021. Volunteers from the Make It Count! student organization encouraged students to sign up for UD's IssueVoter, an online platform that sends your opinions directly to your representative. Students can also use the tool to receive targeted alerts before Congress votes and track representatives' votes and bill outcomes.

NEWARK, Del. — The United States has seen a historic rise in voter engagement among 18- to 29-year-olds since 2014, but many young first-time voters may lack access to information about how and where to vote in official elections. Despite the challeges, the voting rate of University of Delaware students increased significantly in the 2020 presidential election, rising to 75 percent in 2020 from a rate of 55.5% in 2016.
The results were presented in an October 2021 report by the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE), an initiative of Tufts University's Institute for Democracy & Higher Education. On Nov. 8, 2021, The University of Delaware received the 2021 Gold Seal for excellence in student voter engagement from the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge. The achievement also earned UD recognition in Washington Monthly’s 2021 Best Colleges for Student Voting Honor Roll.

UD is committed to helping students make their voices heard. To support UD's commitment to support voter engagement and civic life, the Office of Student Life offers a list of events and resources to students on its Civic Engagement web page:
