Elections are important. The people we elect into office make lasting decisions about human and civil rights, the economy, education, the environment, national security, etc. – yet fewer than 60% of Americans have participated in each presidential election since 1968. Every vote is a representation of the rich diversity and complex needs of our nation. Every vote counts. In 2012, Barack Obama won the presidency with just 51% of the popular vote, and in 2016, Donald Trump won with just 46%, with voter turnout hovering around 55% for each election. Only 44.5% of Lafayette students voted in the 2016 presidential election, which was an increase of 10.6% over the 2012 election.
