When it comes to voting at the polls, not all college majors are created equal, according to a study released by the Charles H. Houston Center for the Study of the Black Experience in Education at Clemson University.

The study found that students of mathematics were the least likely to register to vote. Only 0.5 percent of math majors had registered to vote, while majors in the physical sciences had a slight edge with 0.6 percent registering to vote. Business and management students enjoyed the highest rate among all majors at 16 percent. Students on the fence about their majors were the most likely to register, with 21 percent registering to vote.
