Voter Registration (2014)

Election Day is Tuesday, November 4, 2014.

Voting allows your voice to be heard and makes a measurable difference to our community. You may not think your vote counts but the people you elect into local, state, and federal offices will influence decisions about budgets, laws, and services that affect you as a student, taxpayer, and citizen. SCU has programs in place to help make the voter registration process easy and quick.

Here are some resources to help you register to vote in your state, learn how to apply (or see if you are eligible) for an absentee ballot, or get connected to your home state to learn more about specific ballot issues and regional elections.
