College and university students present a formidable voting bloc in 2020 – if they vote. The unusually high turnout of college students in 2018 proved decisive in several Senate, House and gubernatorial races, because not only did students vote in higher numbers, they voted for Democratic candidates. According to national exit polls, 67% of young people (18-29) cast their ballots for Democratic House candidates vs. 32% for Republicans.
Feminist Majority Foundation Campus Vote 2020 Campaign strategy builds on 25 years of specializing in college campus organizing. Through a robust, multi-channel online campaign with on-the-ground organizing on campuses that are open this fall, we will mobilize college students to register and vote; work to counter any voter suppression efforts, including placing voting locations at hard to reach distances from campuses or providing too few voting machines; and this year, with the looming threat to in-person voting caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Feminist Majority Foundation will work to ensure students take full advantage of mail-in and absentee balloting systems.
