Loyola University Maryland

October 6, 2020


Turbovote ranked Loyola University Maryland No. 6 for the percentage of undergraduate students who signed up for TurboVote and No. 8 for the total amount of voter registration sign-ups between Aug. 1-Sept. 2, 2020.

LoyolaVotes is a non-partisan campus task force that uses an online platform called TurboVote to provide resources about voter registration, absentee ballots, and election information to students, faculty, staff, administrators, and other members of the community.

“As we prepare for a presidential election in November, we are pushing education and resources to make voting easy and accessible,” said Elise Gower, associate director of programs for the Center for Community Service and Justice. “Promoting the value of civic engagement is critical in all of the communities our students find themselves—on campus, in Baltimore, and at home.”

In addition to these rankings, Loyola was awarded the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge Silver Seal in 2019. Loyola experienced a 20-point increase between the election years of 2014 to 2018. Loyola joined more than 700 campuses across the country by entering in the ALL IN Democracy Challenge. The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge is a nonpartisan, national initiative recognizing and supporting campus as they work to increase democratic engagement and full student voter participation.
