Each year the BGSU Votes team composes an action plan of goals, strategies, and activities to help BGSU work toward full voter participation. Members of the BGSU Votes leadership team, coalition members from across campus, and various external organizations have contributed to the creation of this action plan. It is a dynamic document and as more collaborations and partnerships are formed, more will be added to the plan. To read the plan, download a copy below.

BGSU has been part of a national study since 2012 to learn more about student registration and voting rates. This study is coordinated by the Institute for Democracy and Higher Education at Tuft's University's Jonathan M. Tisch College of Civic Life.
