Celebrate your right to vote at Election Central, University of Delaware's nonpartisan, election-night tradition since 2008.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Election Central 2020 will be a live virtual Zoom event on November 3, 6 to 8 p.m. Journalists from UD’s Student Television Network (STN), The Review, and Delaware Public Media will discuss voter turnout, talk with first-time voters, share political humor, and hear what members of Gen Z think about the future. 

Panels of faculty experts and students will discuss polling, how to manage stress, female voters, and what to expect after November 3:

Election 2020: Polling & Expectations—With a focus on battleground states and the Electoral College, student panelists will ask questions and offer their perspectives. Lindsay Hoffman, Ph.D., will moderate a talk with political experts Louis Rossi, Ph.D.; Paul Brewer, Ph.D.; and Phil Jones, Ph.D.

​Vice President Joe Biden and the University of Delaware's beloved mascot Baby Blue invited the UD community to please vote!

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.

UD offers a variety of resources to help students and the community stay informed.
