To encourage and recognize higher education election engagement in NC, we hosted three contests.
East Carolina University was the first place winner of the #NCVotingChallenge posting the largest number of photos on Instagram of individuals wearing their “I Voted Stickers” on Election Day. They received $450 to support ongoing engagement efforts. As the runner-up, NC State received $200.
The 2014 NC Voter Registration Competition was a contest held in conjunction with National Voter Registration Day on September 23. Five institutions participated and Elizabeth City State University won the $450 prize.
We sponsored a contest for eight NC institutions who used either TurboVote or studentvote.org to manage voter registration during fall 2014. The participating institutions registered 400 individuals between the contest period of September 10th -October 10th, Elon University won first place and a $450 prize to support future engagement efforts.
