Student Association for Voter Empowerment
Institionalize the Vote
The Higher Education Act of 1998 requires that U.S. colleges and universities make a “good faith effort” to register students to vote, but many schools have yet to meet standards. In these cases, partisan student groups often become the main voter registrants, which can alienate undecided and independent voters. SAVE chapters work with university administration to organize non-partisan voter registration outlets in new student orientation, course curricula, school-wide events, and high-traffic areas on campus.
