The BIG TEN VOTING CHALLENGE aims to increase the number of eligible student voters across the country and encourage participation at the polls for all elections. Preliminary 2018 midterm data shows that student voter turnout increased by 224% on Big Ten campuses, compared to an increase of 164% at non-Big Ten schools.
Each of the 14 schools within the Big Ten Conference is competing in the Challenge. Utilizing NSLVE data as our benchmark, two winners will be honored in the fall of 2019: the campus with the greatest overall turnout in 2018, and the campus with the greatest growth in turnout from 2014 to 2018.
But the real winner will be you – for exercising your privilege to vote and your power to change the world.
