Harvard Votes Challenge

In Fall 2018, ahead of the midterm elections, the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation and Institute of Politics launched the Harvard Votes Challenge to promote student voter registration and turnout across Harvard. The effort was a collaboration between students, administrators, and faculty aiming to build a culture of civic engagement, lower the barriers to voting, and institutionalize voting registration and outreach.
