On paper, NYU should be a dead zone for electoral participation; it is the largest school in a city with one of the worst voter turnout rates in America.

In November 2017, only 23 percent of New Yorkers voted in the mayoral election, an all time low. In June, an abysmal 14 percent of Democratic voters cast ballots in a hotly contested congressional primary in New York’s District 12 — one of two congressional districts straddling NYU’s Washington Square campus. Both the mayoral and congressional elections were won by Democratic incumbents — Bill de Blasio and Carolyn Maloney — with more resources and power than their respective challengers.

Location isn’t the only factor limiting NYU’s electoral influence. Young people, tens of thousands of which attend NYU, register to vote at a much lower rate than other age groups. Ironically, NYU’s world renowned diversity also limits its influence in local elections; some of its students are not U.S. citizens, while those that are U.S. citizens are, in many cases, registered to vote in other states.

But local elections take place regardless of whether or not constituents are registered. Tomorrow — Thursday, Sept. 13 — Greenwich Village will have another opportunity to pick its nominees for multiple state and local representatives. Elections will be held for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, state legislature and state assembly, among other lower level races.

While it is too late to register to vote in Thursday’s election, those who are already registered can cast their ballots at a designated New York City polling location. If you are missing out, don’t fret; unregistered voters still have time to register in advance of the 2018 congressional midterm elections this November.
