U-M profs think redesigned polling places could attract young voters
Officials at the University of Michigan are seeing success with a new approach to attracting young voters to the polls. It all involves the design of the polling places.
The concept of theCreative Campus Voting Project is to offer a hands-on, interactive voting experience that might attract young, new voters.
U-M Art and Design professor, Stephanie Rowden, is a co-creator of the Voting Project.
“We’re designing an experience that we hope is welcoming, clear, nonpartisan, and maybe even a little joyful and delightful.
Rowden says the voting design appear to be a success with the art museum attracting some 5,000 new voters in 2020 during the height of the pandemic.
