Campus Vote Project

Campus Vote Project was started by the Fair Elections Center in 2012 to focus and expand its work around student voting issues. Carroll University is one of 235 campuses that partner with the Campus Vote Project and Wisconsin is one of the ten core Campus Vote Project states. In addition, Carroll also participates in the ALL IN Democracy Challenge in which we create and implement an action plan to increase voter registration rates on campus. View Carroll University’s current action plan.

Democracy Fellows

As part of our relationship with the Campus Vote Project, we have two openings each semester for Democracy Fellows. Democracy Fellows are Carroll University students that are trained by the Campus Vote Project to register students to vote, educate fellow students on election law’s and what’s on the ballot, and make sure students are ready to engage with democracy. Democracy Fellows are nonpartisan resources that receive a stipend per semester from the Campus Vote Project.
