365体育官方网站Voting is a powerful way to participate in our democracy. At Albion, we are a community of purpose, belonging and action, and we believe that all students should feel empowered to make their voices heard in elections.
This year, President Johnson has joined more than 160 college presidents and chancellors in committing to full student voter registration and participation through the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge (ALL IN). To support this, Albion offers resources to help students get registered, get out to vote and stay informed.

It takes two minutes to sign up! Albion's partnership with TurboVote is supported by the Albion College Student Senate.
