TurboVote Partnership Logo

80 colleges and universities have joined a partnership with The Democracy Commitment’s headquarter host and the American Democracy Project’s (ADP) parent organization, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU); NASPA – Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education; and TurboVote. This nonpartisan effort aims to increase voter engagement on college and university campuses.

Through this partnership, TurboVote, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, will bring its innovative “one-stop-shop” voter engagement platform to students at college and university campuses across the country.

Made possible by a grant from the Rita Allen Foundation, the institutions receive a $1,200 subsidy for using TurboVote in their voter engagement efforts this year. The grant is available for up to 100 institutions, so less than half of the slots remain open.

TurboVote’s platform helps colleges and universities meet federal mandates that require institutions provide students with voter registration information. With help from AASCU and NASPA, TurboVote hopes to support institutions in meeting these mandates and set a new standard for voter engagement in higher education.

For more information check out the full news release on AASCU’s website. If you’d like to learn more about or take advantage of this opportunity, please contact Stephanie South, TDC’s national coordinator, at souths@aascu.org.


As of a couple weeks ago, 70 schools have entered into the partnership, including two TDC community colleges and 28 AASCU/ADP institutions.  You can find the full list below; TDC campuses have two asterisks and ADP schools are indicated with an asterisk.
