Where Do Online Voters Live?

Source: undergraduate Association

A total of 895 students voted online during last week’s Undergraduate Association Senate and 2012 Class Council elections. This is approximately 20 percent of eligible students, a decrease in voter turnout compared to last year’s fall election turnout of approximately 30 percent. Additionally, about 45 students voted on paper this year.

* Off-campus residents were not registered in the database until they explicitly requested it; a total of 17 undergraduates registered. The 137 number is an estimate of how many eligible undergraduates live off-campus.

** This number includes 20 students who live in graduate dormitories and 353 students whose living situation is unknown.
