Voter Registration Information for Students
Posted in Student Communications
September 20, 2023
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 (new window).
GU Votes (new window), the non-partisan GU Politics-supported student-led initiative that works to enhance the voting culture at Georgetown, partnered with the Andrew Goodman Foundation (new window) to create this voter portal (new window). 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 email@example.com (new window) with any questions.
The following resources may also be helpful to you:
- Review USAGov’s (new window) absentee and early voting guide and learn about voting for college students. (https://www.usa.gov/absentee-voting (new window))
- For information about voter registration in the District of Columbia, please visit the DC Board of Elections website at: https://dcboe.org (new window)/.
- For information about voter registration in locations other than DC, please visit the Election Assistance Commission website at: https://www.eac.gov/ (new window).
- Students will receive state-specific information from GU Votes and the Office of Federal Relations with deadlines for each state for voter registration and absentee ballot requests. To find your state’s voter registration deadlines, please visit https://www.usvotefoundation.org/vote/state-elections/state-election-dates-deadlines.htm (new window). 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.
