WSU participated in the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) conducted by CIRCLE at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service. Since NSLVE’s launch in January 2013, more than 260 campuses signed up to receive their student voting rates for 2012, providing CIRCLE with a solid foundation for growth and for national research on college and university student voting. Here are the recently released results for WSU from the 2012 elections:
Total student enrollment: 6422
Ineligible to vote because too young: 18
Number of students who registered: 4668
Number of students who voted: 3,344
The voting rate below reflects the proportion of our eligible students (US citizens age 18 and older) who actually voted in the 2012 federal election.
Registration rate: 73.5%
Voting rate: 52.7%
Rate of registered voters who voted: 71.6%
