Cortland Votes

SUNY Cortland's mission statement includes the idea that Students grow as engaged citizens with a strong social conscience fostered by outstanding teaching, scholarship and service. An important part of being an engaged citizen is, of course, voting. 

Through its Action Team and in partnership with other nonpartisan groups, on- and off-campus, the Institute works to register students to vote and to get students out to vote.  It also provides students and others with opportunities to learn about issues through presentations, panel discussions, and public deliberations, often in ways that connect students' academic courses to current issues.

Students can learn the up-to-date voter registration processes and forms at the Cortland County Board of Elections' website, and they can register online at Register to vote in NYS.

One way that SUNY Cortland demonstrates its commitment to voting is by publishing its NSLVE data (PDF).  Learn more about National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement.
