CVP Description

In 2012, Fair Elections Center launched Campus Vote Project (CVP) to focus and expand its work around student voting issues.

Since then, Campus Vote Project
has been working to normalize and institutionalize student voting by working directly with colleges and universities across the country.
This includes the creation of the
state student voter guides,
answering questions specific to college students such as, “Will registering to vote with my campus address affect my driver’s license or car registration?”

CVP works with colleges and universities across the country and focuses its time and resources on supporting community colleges and minority serving institutions where these resources can have a greater impact.

The ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge empowers colleges and universities to achieve excellence in student democratic engagement

At the Challenge, we believe higher education should play a role in developing an active and informed citizenry by educating students, motivating them to engage in American democracy, and instilling the value of lifelong participation. Through an intentionally designed program – which provides incentive, structure, and accountability – this national, nonpartisan initiative inspires, supports, and celebrates colleges and universities working to improve civic learning, political engagement, and voter participation.- Taken from the All In Campus Democracy Challenge Website.
