Get Out and Vote
All students are strongly encouraged to participate in the electoral process and exercise their right to vote. Full-time undergraduate students who live on campus or off campus in the town are eligible to register locally and vote.
Students who choose not to register locally, and maintain voter registration in another state or municipality, are encouraged to check the deadlines and procedures for absentee ballots in that specific state or municipality. Undergraduate commuters, graduate students, and part-time students should register with their local municipality. Students can pick up voter registration forms from the Office of Student Engagement located on the Barone Campus Center Lower Level - Suite 094.
Please complete the applicant information section and submit this form to the Dean of Students at each institution you have attended. Your signature authorizes the release of information regarding your disciplinary record.
