New Report: On-Campus Early In-Person Voting in Florida in the 2018 General Election

Posted on September 17, 2019

In the 2018 Florida General Election, nearly 60,000 registered voters in nine Florida counties cast early in-person (EIP) ballots at 12 on-campus voting locations at universities and colleges. Young voters, people of color, and those who did not cast a ballot in 2016, disproportionately voted at these locations.

Our research indicates that turnout—especially among young registered voters—in the counties that introduced on-campus voting locations, was higher in 2018 compared to 2016. Turnout in Florida is bolstered by on-campus locations as it lowers the opportunity costs of voting for all registered voters, particularly for young registered voters.
