The fifty states of the U.S. are split into six regions, and six regional representatives are selected to appoint voters in their states (the regions include the Far West, the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Northeast, South, and Southwest). Each region has 145 media votes, for a total of 870 votes. In addition, all previous Heisman winners may vote, and one final vote is counted through public balloting. Although voters still attending college can not vote until said player's collegiate career is over. The Heisman ballots contain a 3-2-1 point system, in which each ballot ranks the voter's top three players and awards them three points for a first-place vote, two points for a second-place vote, and one point for a third-place vote. The points are tabulated, and the player with the highest total of points across all ballots wins the Heisman Trophy.
Of course, the Heisman committee looks at football stats. They look at running, passing and interception rates. They also look at what players do with their off time. Those who are involved in clubs or volunteer work are given more than a passing glance.
There are 840 members of the media, with 145 from six different regions. And then the 54 living past Heisman Trophy winners. There is also 1 fan vote that is counted of all fans. Each ballot has three votes, for first, second, and third place. You get points based on what vote you got, first place, three points, second place 2 points, and third place 1 point.
The Heisman Trophy Trust selects six regional representatives (usually sports reporters). Those representatives select state representatives who are responsible for selecting voters within each state. The number of voters depends on the size of the state (California and Texas have many).
Each region tallies 145 media votes, totaling 870 media votes. In addition, former Heisman winners vote as well.
Voters chose their top three choices. Candidates get three points for being a first choice, two points for second and one point for third.
