Creative campus project helps U-M students navigate voting

 The University of Michigan is finding new ways to get students to the polls.

Associate professor Stephanie Rowden said through research, she found that students were encountering a variety of barriers when it came to voting.

In 2014, only 16.5% of students voted, although nearly 70% were registered.

"To us, that indicated an interest in voting, but something was happening between the intent to vote and following through," said Rowden, a professor for the STAMP school of art and design.

Rowden recruited a group of students to re-imagine the voter experience, so students would start showing up.
