It's Election Week! Tisch College, JumboVote, and many partners throughout Tufts University are coming together to ensure students who haven't yet voted can do so safely, and to host (mostly virtual) events and opportunities for members of the Tufts community to understand and experience the election results.
Welcome to Tufts Votes!
Civic engagement is one of the foundational values of Tufts University, and voting is a foundational civic act. The Tufts Votes 2020 website brings together news, research, resources, and other timely nonpartisan information about the 2020 elections on campus and beyond. Students and other members of the Tufts community can find links to key tools for helping them cast their ballot, insights and commentary from Tufts experts, and events featuring leaders from all areas of political life. Get informed, get involved, and vote!
Tufts Research on the Election
A new paper co-authored by Brian Schaffner, the Newhouse Professor of Civic Studies at Tisch College and in the Political Science Department, studies the impact of young people pledging to vote.
Like their slightly older peers, youth ages 18-21 are active and engaged in civic life. Are the institutions that help them develop as voters doing their part?
