UAlbany Voter Registration Drive is Tops in SUNY System

More than 2,500 University at Albany students, the largest number at a State University of New York campus, registered to vote during a five-week SUNY-wide voter registration drive.

The voting drive, conducted on 64 SUNY campuses, set up a competition to establish which campus could register the most students. As the winner, UAlbany will be rewarded with a concert.

Other campuses where a significant number of students registered to vote include Buffalo State, with more than 1,500 students, and Stony Brook, with about 1,300. New Paltz was close to 1,200.

Across the SUNY system, more than 11,000 students registered to vote. The voting drive was sponsored by United University Professions, New York Public Interest Research Group, New York State United Teachers, SUNY Student Assembly and Rock the Vote.
