Data Insight

What is the participation rate in campus elections?

Voter turnout of campus elections is lower than US national elections at just under 10% of eligible voters. The US national average is 48%.

Highly residential campuses tend to have higher turnout, possibly due to greater network effects of word-of-mouth promotion and organization around interesting voter concerns.
