"Binghamton University is honored to be recognized as a Most Engaged Campus for College Student Voting,” said Alison Handy Twang, interim director at the Center for Civic Engagement. “Binghamton has made institutionalization of voter engagement strategies a priority, integrating nonpartisan voter outreach into orientation, residential life, academic courses and more. By providing information and support to help students register to vote, learn what's on the ballot and turn out to vote, Binghamton has seen regular increases in student voter turnout. We look forward to continuing this important work to ensure all students can make their voices heard."
