Achieve Lead Vote

Susquehanna is working harder than ever to encourage student participation in democracy.  In 2020, a diverse working group of university faculty and staff was assembled to brainstorm new ways to engage students in voting and elections. From that collaboration, we have created this hub of information with the aim of providing a central location for resources and answers to frequently asked questions surrounding voting and election processes.

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 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 meets regularly throughout the year.

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.
