Join millions of new voters and seize your power to be heard on November 3. The first step is getting registered to vote.
Start by filling out some basic information. You’ll finish registering on your state’s election website.
If you’re a college student who’s living away from home, you can register at either your home address or where you’re living while at school.
Where you choose to register is a personal decision (for example, do you want to have a say on local issues around your campus?) You’ll be assigned a polling place near whichever address you use to register. If getting there will be difficult on election day, you should sign up for an absentee or mail-in ballot.
Good to know: Your financial aid won’t be affected by the address you choose.
In general, you need to be 18 years old by Election Day and a U.S. citizen (in addition to some other requirements).

Using the Rock the Vote form is one of the quickest, most convenient options.
But you can also register by mail (contact your county elections office) or in person (sometimes on campus, at the DMV or local election office), if you prefer.
And remember to vote on November 3, 2020!
