Pace Votes 2020

News Story

So you’re registered to vote. Now what? Learn more about the Presidential primaries and their policies, get the low-down on Election Day processes, jump on the #PaceVotes2020 initiative, and more!

According to CNN’s breakdown of the 2016 Presidential Election, Donald Trump edged slightly ahead of Hillary Clinton at a difference of only 74 electoral votes. At the same time, Clinton earned just 48.5% of the popular vote over Trump’s 46.4%. The point is: the last US election cycle came down to the wire. News stations were projecting a different winner every hour that passed, which means your vote—yes, you—absolutely, unequivocally counts. We understand the process of voting can be confusing, though. We get it.

Did you know that if you are a student living in New York State while attending Pace University and you are a United States citizen, you are eligible to register to vote at your New York State address (on- or off- campus)? You will be assigned to a New York State polling site, as long as you have lived at that address a minimum of 30 days prior to an election. You may also choose to register at the address where you grew up if it is still considered a permanent residence.

The Center for Community Action and Research (CCAR) is your source for all things related to voting; whether you’ve got your eye on upcoming local elections, the Spring 2020 primaries, or the big 2020 Presidential Election, CCAR is here to help!
