Mason Votes posts original content and voter information throughout each election year with increased coverage during campaign seasons.
Mason Votes is George Mason University’s non-partisan political news outlet. An online election forum featuring candidate bios, voter guides, and more, Mason Votes is a space where students can come to learn about the issues, find out where each candidate stands, and engage in a dialogue about how to address the challenges facing America and the world.
Political affiliation doesn’t matter; Mason Votes offers a non-partisan evaluation of the issues and lets the facts speak for themselves.
Mason Votes was started in 2008 and has been active in every election cycle since, especially the presidential elections of 2008 and 2012.
Close proximity to Washington, D.C. and Virginia’s status as an important swing state have made George Mason University a popular campaign stop for local, state, and national political candidates. Past events have included appearances by President Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Bill Clinton, Ralph Nader, John McCain, Joe Biden, Jim Webb, and Gerry Connolly (just to name a few). In 2016 alone, Bernie Sanders, Tim Kaine, John Kasich, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama all visited Mason’s Fairfax campus.
