University and College Ballot Bowl Result

The Ballot Bowl was developed by the California Students Vote Project (CSVP), a project of the California Secretary of State—in partnership with then California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, now Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis, and a coalition of nonprofit organizations. The CSVP aims to increase civic engagement and voter participation among California university and college students.

Awards will be given to one campus in each system of education based on each of the following criteria:

  • The campus with the largest number of students registered.
  • The campus with the largest percentage of its student body registered.
  • The campus with the most creative approach to registering students.
  • The campus with the largest number of registrations at an on-campus polling place or vote center.

Four awards will be presented to the CCC, CSU, UC, and AICCU systems, for a total of sixteen awards. In the spirit of camaraderie, each campus will be able to win only one prize.
