The Creative Campus Voting Project was sparked by a statistic and an insight from behavioral science.

 

THE STATISTIC:

Only 14% of U-M students voted in the 2014 midterms.

 

THE INSIGHT:

Scolding doesn’t help. 


Research confirms that most students are interested in voting.
But they’re faced with a process that is new and with rules that are confusing. That’s where we come in.

 

Our team has been using creative action research to increase college-age voter participation since 2018. Read about our story.
