Student Civic and Voter Empowerment

About the Student Civic and Voter Empowerment Act (AB 963)

The California Student Vote Project (SVP) is a special project that is being implemented throughout the higher education system in California (CCC’s and CSU’s). The purpose of this project is to encourage student civic engagement efforts through partnership with the California Secretary of State.

Upcoming Events

Ballot Bowl Competition

Established in 2018, the California University and College Ballot Bowl is a friendly competition where all California higher education systems can compete to register the most students to vote.

The purpose of the California University and College Ballot Bowl is to:

  • Inspire the students to become active participants in our democracy
  • Motivate campuses to adopt and implement policies that boost civic engagement and participation
  • Showcase best practices and most civically engaged California colleges and universities

A critical step to have our voices heard on key issues, policies, and by elected officials is to Register to Vote!
