The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge is a national awards program that recognizes colleges and universities for their commitment to increasing student voting rates. For our work in the 2016 Election, we were recognized as a Silver Seal Campus with voter participation rates between 60% and 69%. This puts us among the universities with the highest voting rates in the United States. This is what happens when Warriors Vote!
