The Help Students Vote Act of 2018

During the last Presidential Election, 29% of Eligible College Students were Not Registered to Vote. That is way too many. Our Democracy works best when Everyone Participates, including College Students.

It’s Great News that Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi (D, IL-8th District) introduced the Help Students Vote Act (HSVA).

This Bill will ensure that College Students Nationwide get the Information they need to Register to Vote and become Active Citizens.

HSVA builds on the Provision of the Higher Education Act that Requires Colleges and Universities to make a “good-faith effort” to Distribute Voter Registration Forms, by adding much-needed Clarity and Support for Voter Registration.

We know that when Young People do get Registered to Vote, they turn out in similar Numbers as other Age Groups.

Colleges and Universities can play an important Role in helping their Students, many of them First Time Voters, get Registered to Vote and be ready for Election Day.

It’s important that Everyone can have their Voice heard in our Democracy, getting Registered to Vote is one Critical Step to making that happen.
