BU Votes

BU Votes is a group of students, staff, and faculty across BU who facilitate voter registration drives with the larger purpose of fostering a culture of civic participation in BU and beyond. If students establish the practice of voting in college, we hope that it will set the pattern of a lifetime of voter participation and other civic involvement in their communities.
