Out-of-State Unregistered Voting Process

Are you registered to vote?


  • Register in your home state as a voting citizen. How you register to vote varies from state to state but most states allow you to register on the states Secretary of State's website.


Do you live in the same state you are registered in?


  • Your option to vote as an out-of-state student is to go home on election day and vote or send in an absentee ballot by mail.
  • The last day to request an absentee-by-mail ballot for the 2016 Presidential and Congressional election is 4:30 PM on November 4, 2016.



Residency status for voting purposes is not the same as residency status for tuition and fee purposes.
