Wisconsin Campus Voting Challenge

The Wisconsin Campus Voting Challenge is a nonpartisan competition among higher education institutions in the State of Wisconsin committed to increasing student voter participation and engagement for the November 3, 2020 general election.

Campus Compact for Wisconsin is facilitating this voting challenge in collaboration with the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge, a national nonpartisan nonprofit that supports more than 670 colleges and universities to institutionalize nonpartisan democratic engagement, and The Wisconsin Chapter of The Campus Vote Project, a national group that works with campuses of all types and sizes to achieve Voter Friendly Campus status and provide paid Democracy Fellows to help with the work.

Awards will be based on campuses’ National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement (NSLVE) reports generated by the Institute for Democracy & Higher Education at Tufts University.  There will be several award categories for both 4-year institutions and 2-year institutions, awarded based on student voter participation in the November 2020 election using data from the National Study of Learning, Voting and Engagement, (NSLVE

Participation in the Wisconsin Challenge will automatically include participation in the national  ALL IN Challenge and awards competition.  Wisconsin based institutions will also be entered into the Wisconsin Campus Voting Challenge. Institutions that opt into the Challenge will be provided guidance and tools to create an action plan for increasing student engagement on their campus. There is no sign-up cost to participate.
