In 2020, a diverse working group of faculty and staff was assembled to brainstorm new ways to engage students in voting and elections. From that group, we have created this hub of useful and reliable information surrounding voting and election processes to provide a central location for resources and answers to frequently asked questions.

Students Voting In Person On Election Day:
Susquehanna will be providing transportation to the two downtown (Sharon Lutheran Church located at 120 S Market St and All Saints Episcopal Church located at 129 N Market St) polling sites for students on a loop from 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The van will pick up students from the main entrance of the Degenstein Campus Center. Susquehanna also will have faculty and staff volunteers on deck to walk with students to downtown polling precincts.

Take the Pledge

Vote Sticker

Make a plan to vote and stick to it.

Studies show that you’re more likely to complete an action if you’ve already made a public commitment to it. That’s why we built this pledge — as a way for you (and your friends and family!) to maintain accountability when it comes to voting.

Not only does voting help your community, but pledging to vote helps SU, too.

About Achieve Lead Vote

One step towards civic participation and being engaged within your community is by casting your vote in Selinsgrove! SU has begun to make pointed efforts to increase the rate of SU students who are registered to vote, and the amount of students who turn up to the polls on election day. This is a diverse working group of faculty and staff tasked with empowering and encouraging students to register and to vote.

The Achieve Lead Vote slogan was coined by one of our students, and expands upon our campus mission/values of Achieve Lead & Serve . The group is non-partisan and continues to meet regularly.

An ALL IN Campus

Susquehanna University is now an ALL IN campus, which is a friendly competition among participating campuses. ALL IN democracy challenge incentivizes institutions of higher ed to work strategically to increase their own voter registration and turnout rates, and rewards/recognizes them for doing so.
