Make a Voting Plan

Students getting into a van with a sign that says "Vote Boat"

You’ve registered, now what?  Your next step is to decide how you’ll cast your vote — by mail or in person. Remember: College students have the right to register to vote at the address they consider the place where they live — whether that’s their family's home or the place where they attend school. You may only be registered and vote in one location.
 
The next election is Tuesday, November 8, 2022, and that can seem very far away, but election deadlines are unforgiving — with no extensions. Don’t wait to make your plan. Here's what to consider when deciding to vote by mail or in person. 

  • Where will you be on election day?
  • What are the deadlines for vote by mail-in your voting precinct?
  • What does your class schedule look like on election day? Will it accommodate voting in person?
  • What’s most comfortable for you?
