K-State is being recognized for an increase in student-voting involvement.
The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge awarded K-State with a silver seal after the percentage of students voting in midterm elections more than doubled from 2014 to 2018.
Data collected by Tufts University’s Institute for Democracy and Higher Education shows that 36 percent of K-State students voted in 2018 midterm elections while only 15.7 percent of students voted in 2014 midterm elections.
The same study, known as the National Study of Learning, Voting and Engangement, shows student voting is up nationwide.
The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge is a nonpartisan effort to increase student voting and democratic engagement on college campuses.
