If you wish to vote on campus or locally on Election Day you must register using your campus or local address. If you wish to ensure that you can vote for candidates in your home district, you should register with your permanent address. (Please ensure you are meeting all calendar deadlines if selecting the absentee ballot option if you will be away from your home district on Election Day.) If you are already registered to vote, you must apply to receive an absentee ballot.

You may register in-person at your local board of elections or any state agency participating in the National Voter Registration Act, on any business day throughout the year but, to be eligible to vote in the November General Election, your application must be received no later than October 10th except, if you have been honorably discharged from the military or have become a naturalized citizen since October 10th, you may register in person at the board of elections up until October 24th.

Notices of change of address from registered voters received by October 15th by a county board of elections must be processed and entered in the records in time for the General Election.
