At the University of Iowa, we celebrate civic engagement and democracy! We encourage our students to be active citizens by voting. Our goal is to increase the number of students who vote, educate the community about how to vote, and foster a campus culture of civic engagement.
We recognize that voting can be complicated and confusing, especially for students who are often first-time voters and new to Iowa City. With this website, we aim to provide non-partisan information about voter registration and voting to ensure that everyone can actively participate in the democratic process.
Your vote is your voice. We encourage all students, staff, faculty, and members of the Hawkeye Community to be active and informed voters. #HawkTheVote

Hawk The Vote was started in 2018 by undergraduate student Jocelyn Roof in conjunction with the University of Iowa Student Government. As the initiative became more time intensive and the need for voter education became more clear, Hawk The Vote was adopted as an official initiative under the Office of Leadership, Service, and Civic Engagement in 2019. Since its founding, the University of Iowa and surrounding community has seen record youth voter turnout and unprecedented increases in voter registration totals.
