University student elections offer a focused setting for engaging students in nationally important, state-of-the-art security and privacy research projects and course work. Annual competitions motivate students to team, innovate, plan, implement, analyze, and present their achievements in a competitive and professional manner. Courses can benefit by tying into the competitions and using the materials and accumulated experiences. The result should be spirited innovation in election system technology, positively affecting students and election systems.
