KILLEEN, TX — Washington Monthly has ranked A&M Central Texas among the best college and universities in the U.S. engaging their students to vote.

The ranking included 139 colleges and universities in the United States.

According to Washington Monthly, they gathered data about the efforts schools are making to encourage their students to vote.

They use that data in their annual college rankings, and publish an honor roll featuring schools with perfect voting scores.

This updated list highlights institutions well prepared for the presidential contest.

139 schools made the list, which is up from 80 last year, according to the publication.

To make this honor roll, schools had to fulfill each of the following six criteria by January 15, 2020:

  • Submitted an ALL IN action plan in 2016 OR in 2020. ALL IN is still accepting 2020 action plans.
  • Submitted an ALL IN action plan in 2018.
  • Signed up to receive 2016 NSLVE data.
  • Made their 2016 NSLVE data, including voter turnout rates, publicly available through ALL IN’s online database. (ALL IN is experiencing some difficulty loading 2016 NSLVE reports to its database. We have included schools that sent their reports to ALL IN and granted permission to publish it, but where ALL IN was not yet able to upload it.)
  • Signed up to receive 2018 NSLVE data.
  • Made their 2018 NSLVE data, including voter turnout rates, publically available through ALL IN’s online database.
