On-Campus Early Voting in Florida in the 2018 General Election

In the 2018 Florida General Election, nearly 60,000 registered voters in 9 Florida counties cast early in-person (EIP) ballots at 12 on-campus voting locations at public and private universities and colleges (“OnCampus Locations”). Young voters, as well as people of color and those who did not cast a ballot in 2016, disproportionately voted at the On-Campus Locations. This research design provides evidence whether the adoption of a single election administration reform—permitting early in-person voting to occur on public college and university campuses in Florida for the 2018 general elections—had a positive effect on turnout, especially among young voters, who do not normally vote in midterm elections.
