GREENVILLE, N.C. — East Carolina University is one of more than 250 campuses in 38 states and the District of Columbia designated as a Voter Friendly Campus through 2024.
Two national nonpartisan organizations — the Fair Elections Center Campus Vote Project and NASPA, Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education — led the initiative, which held participating institutions accountable for planning and implementing practices that encouraged their students to register and vote in 2022 and future elections.
The Voter Friendly Campus designation recognizes ECU’s bolstered efforts to help students overcome barriers to participating in the political process. ECU was evaluated based on a campus plan to register, educate and encourage student voter turnout in 2022. Additional factors included how ECU facilitated voter engagement efforts on campus and a final analysis of its efforts.
