Voter Registration Information For Students
Posted in Student Communications
September 27, 2022
Dear Georgetown Student,
I write today to share information on voter registration and resources offered by the University to assist you with voting. The University encourages all eligible students to register and vote in this year’s elections.
As we aim to reach 100% eligible-student voter registration, students can now find a “Register to Vote/Request Your Absentee Ballot” button on MyAccess, or access the portal directly at:/ (new window) bit.ly/guvotes.
GU Votes, the non-partisan GU Politics-supported student-led initiative that works to enhance the voting culture at Georgetown, partnered with the Andrew Goodman Foundation to create this voter portal. In addition to voter registration, the portal helps students to request an absentee ballot, sign up for election updates, check their registration status and learn more about candidates. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The following resources may also be helpful to you:
- Review USAGov’s absentee and early voting guide and learn about voting for college students. (https://www.usa.gov/absentee-voting )
- For information about voter registration in the District of Columbia, please visit the DC Board of Elections website at: https://dcboe.org/
- For information about voter registration in locations other than DC, please visit the Election Assistance Commission website at: https://www.eac.gov/
- Students will receive state-specific information from GU Votes and the Office of Federal Relations with deadlines in your state for voter registration absentee ballot requests. To find your state’s voter registration deadlines for the General Election—to be held on November 8 this year at https://www.usvotefoundation.org/vote/state-elections/state-election-dates-deadlines.htm . For the most complete and up-to-date information, contact your state election office.
This notice is provided in compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008.
