This research aims to determine the correlation of Sufism and politics in making the environment for new students at UIN K.H. Abdurrahman Wahid Pekalongan as a beginner voter who is smart in using his right to vote. Indicators for intelligent voters are assumed to be at least giving their right to vote in the general election, being able to internalize an anti-money politics attitude. To respond to this, the researchers conducted action research in the form of a questionnaire on students at UIN K.H. Abdurrahman Wahid Pekalongan as an effort to actualize the values of Sufism among novice voters, in this case students. This research uses a descriptive method using al-Ghazali's Sufism approach with data obtained through questionnaires, books, journals and various articles related to this research. This research was conducted on 100 new students. This research measures the extent to which new students understand the perspective of Sufism as novice voters. The results of the research show that the participation rate of new students among first-time voters is still low, awareness as a first-time voter is still lacking and understanding of the importance of exercising voting rights is still relatively below average.
