PioneerVote is a student-led campaign to help raise awareness of political issues occurring at the local, state and federal level.
The goal of PioneerVote is to get as many students as possible to register to vote and ultimately casting their ballot. We want to make the process quick and easy, especially for students registering in Connecticut.

Sacred Heart University will be your home for the next 4 years, so it’s important that you have a voice in the issues that will affect YOU.
The issue: College students aren’t voting! While our generation is aware of social issues, we are politically inactive. In the 2016 General Election, 62 percent of voters were ages 45 and up. Only 38 percent of people who voted between the ages 18 to 44. That’s not OK.
PioneerVote’s mission is to change that. Your right to vote and using your voice is vital. Every vote counts, and if you don’t vote, you’re giving up that right. If we want change, let’s start taking action now.
