Big Ten Voting Challenge - Results for 2018

On September 17, 2017, the Big Ten Chancellors and Presidents announced in a letter to students that the 14 Big Ten Universities would compete for two trophies - one for the university with the largest percent voting turnout for November 2018, and one for the university with the largest percent increase in turnout.

The turnout data from November 6, 2018, was compared with the mid-term election in 2014.  Data is calculated by Tuft's University's NSLVE project.  The UW-Madison report was announced September 19, 2019.

NSLVE UW-Madison reports:  2018 (52.9% turnout)  2016 (48.8% turnout)    2014 (35.5% turnout)

"One of our missions as an American educational institution is to prepare and encourage everyone who passes through the university to be an active, engaged citizen. Voting is one important aspect of this. It is essential to our democratic form of government and a responsibility that comes with citizenship."  -From UW-Madison's Chancellor Rebecca Blank's blog, January 29, 2016
