The college community is a natural place for students to seek information and become civically and politically engaged, but they often face practical hurdles that keep them from voting.
Community Vote Project has developed state-specific guides to help students understand their rights and how to register and cast a ballot in their school or home community.
The CVP Blog keeps you up-to-date on the latest election-related information and provides insight on how to best engage with students, campus administrators and election officials.
About Campus Vote Project
Campus Vote Project helps colleges and universities institutionalize reforms that empower students with the information they need to register and vote. We provide resources and information administrators and students can use to work together to overcome challenges student often face when voting. College students are a diverse and important sector of the electorate, but a large numbers of students do not vote (particularly in mid-term, state and local elections). By empowering them with information, is critical to getting students to be engaged and participate in the process.Data shows that, when armed with the relevant information, students will vote. Contact for help developing a school-sponsored student voting information website, registering students at freshman orientation, informing them of early voting options, or getting a polling place on campus eliminate some of the barriers that keep students from the polls.
