Young people make up a large portion of eligible voters and can enact change in their communities but many don’t register or cast a ballot.
CVP has developed state-specific guides to help students understand 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.
Will voting in my college community affect my federal financial aid? Does being an in-state or out-of-state student for tuition purposes affect my right to vote? Get answers to some common questions from students.
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.
