The UVote Project helps colleges and universities integrate comprehensive, 50-state voter registration into official school activities like orientation programs, residential life, or class registration. UVote schools typically see their student voter registration rates double or even triple, contributing to a stronger culture of engagement on campus while providing a critical first step toward a lifetime of responsible civic participation.
