The Tribune (SLO) (Sunday) - - Local - BY SCOTT MIDDLECAMP smid­dle­camp@thetri­bune­news.com

Cal Poly regis­tered the most new stu­dent vot­ers of any Cal­i­for­nia col­lege ahead of the Tues­day gen­eral elec­tion to win the Sec­re­tary of State’s Bal­lot Bowl com­pe­ti­tion.

Cal Poly regis­tered 3,178 stu­dents to edge CSU Fuller­ton, which had 2,627 reg­is­tra­tions, and UC Santa Bar­bara (1,857).

The com­pe­ti­tion is put on by The Cal­i­for­nia Stu­dents Vote Project and backed by Sec­re­tary of State, Alex Padilla and var­i­ous non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions to pro­mote civic en­gage­ment and voter par­tic­i­pa­tion across the Cal­i­for­nia col­le­giate sys­tem.

Com­mu­nity col­leges, CSU and UC uni­ver­si­ties and pri­vate in­sti­tu­tions were all in­vited to par­tic­i­pate by reg­is­ter­ing stu­dents through a link. The num­ber of stu­dents regis­tered through the school’s link was dis­played on the Bal­lot Bowl page along­side the other com­peti­tors.

Cal Poly will re­ceive an un­spec­i­fied award ten­ta­tively slated to be pre­sented Nov. 14.
