Voter Registration

Santa Clara University is engaging its student body to register to vote, gain resources about the variety of ways to vote, learn about the election process, participate in election-related events, and vote on Election Day.


As a participating institution in the ALL-IN Campus Democracy Challenge, Santa Clara University has the following goals for 2019 and 2020:

  • Provide students with information about how to register to vote in California and all other states.
  • Provide students with resources about the variety of ways to vote including absentee voting, voting in another state, and voting while abroad.
  • Provide students with resources to learn about the election process, candidates, and issues of interest during this election season.
  • Provide students with a campus polling location so they have an accessible place to vote on Election Day.
