GU Votes

GU Votes is a student-led initiative working to enhance the voting culture at Georgetown by simplifying the voting process, increasing turnout rates among students, and directly integrating voter registration into the university ecosystem. Thanks to these efforts, Georgetown University now makes voter registration available on “MyAccess” so that students may register to vote when they register for classes. Among eligible Georgetown students, overall voter participation in midterm elections increased from 20.1% in 2014 to 49.0% in 2018.
