MiddVotes student leaders smile as they greet first year students at Middlebury's Student Activities Fair.

Our goal is to mobilize students to be active participants in our democracy.

A vibrant democracy is not a given - it takes careful tending and diligent stewardship to survive and thrive. We mobilize students to be active participants and ready stewards of democracy through education, access and organizing. Find your place in this work here! 

First Year Residence Hall Competition!

Calling the Class of 2027!

MiddVotes, Res Life, and the Center for Community Engagement are challenging YOU to demonstrate your commitment to democracy and civic engagement. Battell + Allen vs. Stewart + Hepburn: who will win?!

In 2020, Middlebury led the NESCAC schools with an 85.7% eligible student voting rate. Let us, as a community, commit to a 100% voting rate for eligible voters in 2024! 

Research suggests that you are more likely to vote when you have a plan beforehand. What is your plan? Let us know how we can help! Whether you are eligible to vote or not, everyone has a role and an opportunity to support democracy.

By pledging to support democracy in one way or another, you are contributing to Middlebury’s overall commitment to democratic values.  

Which team are you on? Go Ballen! Go Stewburn!
