Voter Registration

The Higher Education Act (HEA) requires that institutions make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms and make such forms widely available to students in election years. Congress included a change in the HEA in 2008 that allowed schools to comply through electronic distribution as long as the transmitted message was devoted exclusively to voter registration and included a form or link to a registration form. 

The link provided below connects students to an internet-based voter registration tool created by TurboVote, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to simplifying the voting process, and allows students to populate the voter registration form on any computer. Students who use this link will be automatically provided information about upcoming voting dates, ID requirements, and polling place locations.
