To establish where you will vote, you must determine the address you consider home; you should have no immediate plans to move somewhere else. As a college student, if you consider your school address home, you can use your school address to register and to vote. If you prefer to use your permanent home address or a parent or guardian’s home address, you can use that address to register and to vote. Remember, you can only vote once.
Once you’ve decided where to vote, be sure you are registered and that your registration is current. You can register to vote in up to 21 days before the election. After that, you can register on Election Day at your polling place.
Register to vote at any University of Minnesota Library on the Twin Cities campus through October 16, the last day you can register early. Visit University Libraries for more information.
If you are going to be somewhere other than your residence on Election Day, plan ahead to vote absentee. If you use your permanent home address or a parent or guardian’s address to register to vote, and will be away at college on Election Day, you will likely have to vote absentee.
Go to your polling place on Election Day and cast your ballot.
