USD Votes Campaign

About USD Votes

USD Votes is a committee composed of students, faculty, and administrators who support the mission of the University of San Diego by working to increase civic awareness and voter participation in the USD community.

We participate in the National Study of Learning, Voting, and Engagement, and use the information collected in that study to guide our efforts to register voters on campus.

USD participates in two college voter-participation competitions. We participate in the All In Campus Democracy Challenge. We received a Bronze Seal for having voter turnout above 50% in 2016, and a Gold Seal for having voter turnout above 40% in 2018.

This year, we are also competing in the California Secretary of State's Ballot Bowl!

We have made a constantly evolving, ambitious plan to register and turn out more students in 2020. We welcome input and new participation from all sources!
