Academic Institutions

On this page you can read about academic institutions that are raising awareness of voter registration and sign up your institution.

Students and young people are among those least likely to be registered to vote. That is why it’s important academic institutions use their networks to help reach their students and ensure they have the opportunity to have their voices heard in the democratic process.

Get involved

If you are a university, college or other academic institution and wish to publicly commit to helping get your students registered to vote, please complete this form. The name of your institution will then appear here.
