Deacs Decide Election Engagement

Deacs Decide 2020 Banner

Deacs Decide is a highly collaborative, campus-wide political engagement project. The program aims to raise awareness about issues at stake in the 2020 election; educate the campus and Winston-Salem community; and register students, faculty, and staff to vote.

Deacs Decide offers a variety of opportunities to create relationships across difference, examine issues critical to American elections, build competencies for engaged citizenship, and experience American democracy.

North Carolina College Student Voting Behaviors

The student leadership team of Deacs Decide, a nonpartisan, student-led election engagement project at Wake Forest University, developed a research survey to learn more about the voting behavior and attitudes of North Carolina college students (IRB #00023893).

The survey is open until September 28, 2020.

For the purposes of this study, participants must also be enrolled in a college or university in North Carolina and must be eligible to vote in the election on November 3, 2020.

Take The Survey

Per the North Carolina Board of Elections, eligible voters must:
  • Be a U.S. citizen;
  • Live in the county of his/her registration, and have resided there for at least 30 days prior to the date of the election;
  • Be at least 18 years old, or will be by the date of the general election;
  • Not be serving a sentence for a felony conviction, including probation, parole, or post-release supervision.
