UT Votes is a student organization that organizes voter registration and voter education activities to increase campus civic engagement and electoral awareness.
The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement is housed at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service, Tufts University.
The University of Texas at Austin Campus Report shows voting rates of 42 percent in 2012 and 18 percent in 2014. Yet, students were registered at rates of 70.2 percent in 2012 and 67.3 percent in 2014. UT Votes is using this report to guide outreach efforts on campus.
