Registering is the first step in exercising your right to vote. We are proud to partner with TurboVote, a non-partisan application that makes voting easy. Using TurboVote, students, faculty, and staff can register to vote and sign up for election reminders. TurboVote is one facet of UIC’s commitment to civic engagement. Help yourself by making your voice heard!
Register at School or at Home - students have a choice about where they register to vote!
Students attending UIC may register at their campus address or choose to remain registered or register at their permanent/home address. Students can only be registered and vote in one location.
Where should I vote?
Due to the changes from COVID-19, there are a number of different scenarios for where college students should register to vote this year. This guidance follows general principles of residency for voting purposes, but you should check with your local election officials for the specific voter registration rules where you live.
To help decide where to vote, check out this state-by-state voting guide for information about registering and voting in all 50 states.
