Campus Election Engagement Project-NC
Since 2008, NC Campus Compact has partnered with the Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) a national, nonpartisan effort to help colleges and universities involve students in elections.
2014 Midterm Election Highlights
As part of the CEEP initiative we provided information and resources to campuses throughout the state of North Carolina. In addition to disseminating CEEP banners and 840 posters to 20 institutions, we distribiuted the following key resources.
In September 2014, we awarded mini-grants between $500 and $750 to support student election engagement efforts to the following institutions. Each campus was expected to form a voter coalition consisting of staff, faculty, and students.
We also disseminated $300 mini-grants to Student Government Association at the following institutions.
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 receive $200.
National Voter Registration Day Competition
The 2014 NC Voter Registration Competition was a contest held in conjunction with National Voter Registration Day on September 23rd. Five institutions participated and Elizabeth City State University won the $450 prize.
Online Voter Registration Competition
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.
We sponsored a webinar series to provide valuable information and resources to NC institutions
