As Americans prepare for the 2020 general election on November 3, college students are facing an especially confusing and stressful election process in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have 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 2020. 

Despite the challenges, UD students are making strides, increasing their voter registration rate by nearly 27% between 2014 and 2018. This year, UD ranks 12th out of 157 schools in Washington Monthly’s 2020 Best Colleges for Student Voting Honor Roll.

The University of Delaware is committed to helping students make their voices heard in 2020. 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:
