Manhattan College community recognized for getting out the vote


Manhattan College is being recognized for the work that members of the community are doing to kickstart voter engagement on campus.

Washington Monthly has included Manhattan College on its annual list of colleges that do the most to turn students into active citizens.

Student voting on the Manhattan College campus increased significantly in last year’s election, rising to 59.6% in 2020 from a rate of 41.3% in 2016. This earned the college its first silver designation from the All In Campus Democracy Challenge, a competition in which more than 1400 colleges and universities strive to reach full voter participation.
