Institute for Democracy & Higher Education’s Democracy Counts 2018: Increased Student And Institutional Engagement
Subject:Measurement and Evaluation
The National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement is a study of U.S. college and university student voting. At the time of this report, the database consists of deidentified records for 10 million students for both the 2014 and 2018 elections. These students attended 1,031 higher education institutions in the U.S. across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Participating institutions give NSLVE permission for their student enrollment records to be matched with public voting records, yielding precise data on their students’ turnout.
