Colorado Sun Op-ed | It’s more important than ever to encourage students to vote

Opinion editorial by U.S. Senator Michael Bennet and MSU Denver President Janine Davidson, Ph.D.

As a U.S. senator and a university president from Colorado, we’re proud of our fellow Coloradans for having the second-highest voter turnout in the country in the 2018 midterm election and hope to carry forward that momentum in 2020.

One group of voters who can help Colorado achieve the highest voting rate this year is college students, many of whom have the opportunity to vote in a presidential election for the first time.
