For the second year, Bard College has been named by Washington Monthly
among the U.S. colleges doing the most to turn students into citizens. Bard's student-led voting rights initiative Election@Bard has defended students’ right to vote since 2014 and is supported by Bard’s Center for Civic Engagement. In last year’s presidential election, Bard College hosted an on-campus polling location for the first time after a court ruling that followed more than two decades of student activism.
