Voter education and registration activities historically have been important undertakings of the nation’s colleges and universities. To support and enhance these civic engagement activities among students, the Washington Higher Education Secretariat launched the National Campus Voter Registration Project and Your Vote, Your Voice in 1996.
These efforts gained heightened importance in 1998 when Congress mandated that all colleges and universities make a good-faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to all degree- or certificate-seeking students attending class on campus.
Your Vote, Your Voice is the cooperative effort of 54 Washington, D.C.-based national higher education associations.
