The Colgate Vote Project strives to create a population of habitual student voters on campus by streamlining the registration and voting process.
Regardless of party affiliation, understanding of politics, or voting eligibility, the Project aims to support all students and create an on-campus environment which encourages political activism and participation of any kind.
As voting represents an irrefutable element of democracy in the United States, the Project aims to encourage students to recognize the voice they have when casting their ballot, and to recognize their duty to vote as citizens.
