About JumboVote

In the run-up to the 2016 general election, Tufts University launched JumboVote as a multifaceted, university-wide initiative to boost political learning, engagement, and voting in that year’s presidential election—and beyond. Spearheaded by Tisch College with support from the Office of the Provost, there are JumboVote representatives in every Tufts school and major administrative department, as well as among the student body. The initiative worked to facilitate voter registration, tackle barriers for Tufts students to vote in local communities, increase voter education, and support events and programs that foster political engagement. In 2018 JumboVote surpassed its 2016 success, and JumboVote is currently preparing for the 2020 election.

You can find more information, resources, and more on the JumboVote website.
