Are you ready for the 2018 Midterm Elections?
We want you to shape the future by casting your vote at the ballot box. Join us as we show what it means to be the Leaders and Best!
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.
The University of Michigan is leading the Challenge, and our goal is to increase our student voter turnout by 200%. In 2018, all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are up for election. In Michigan, we will be electing a new Governor and Secretary of State. We'll also be voting for State Representatives and State Senators, Mayors and City Council members.
Each of the 14 schools within the Big Ten Conference is competing in the Challenge. Two winners will be honored: 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.
To get started, visit TurboVote. It’ll only take five minutes.
