Welcome to Yale Votes
Yale Votes is a non-partisan organization that strives to increase civic engagement among all Yalies and make the voting process as easy and clear as possible through active engagement with every member of the student body.
The few minutes it will take to get informed are worthwhile. Your vote matters — and not just in national elections. In 2018, 88 seats for state legislatures were decided by less than half of a percentage point. 16 of these races were decided by 10 votes or fewer, and two were decided by a single vote.
