The California Students Vote Project, a project of the California Secretary of State in partner­ship with the California Lieutenant Governor and a coalition of nonprofit organizations, aims to increase civic engagement and voter partici­pation among California University and college students..

It is with great enthusiasm that the Secretary of State invites you to the California University and College Ballot Bowl, a challenge that encourages campuses to engage their students in the democratic process and register them to vote.

The Ballot Bowl will allow the campuses of the California Community College, California State University, and University of California, and Privates (AICCU) systems to participate in a friendly competition for the highest number of students registered and the highest percentage of the student body registered to vote.
