Ballots for the 2023 Heisman Trophy went out today, emailed to 870 members of the media and to our 57 living Heisman winners. Completing the 928 total votes is one collective fan vote hosted by the Nissan Heisman House.

The deadline for submitting votes is Dec. 4, at 5 p.m. ET. Ballots are returned to Deloitte, the accounting firm that tabulates the votes.

Voters can select three players on their ballot. A first place vote allots 3 points to the player selected, second place gets 2 points and third place gets 1 point. Any college football player at any level who is eligible to play college football as determined by the NCAA can be included on the ballot.

The Heisman finalists, which will always be four as of 2021, will be announced live on ESPN on Dec. 4. The winner of the Heisman Trophy will be announced on Saturday night, Dec. 9, also on ESPN.
