Voter Registration Deadlines
AACRAO has compiled a list of voter registration deadline information to assist campuses in distributing voter registration forms to all students. The list includes state voter registration deadlines, State Elections Division contact information, links to online state registration forms and deadlines for institutions to request and distribute mail-in registration forms.
In addition, AACRAO strongly urges institutions to electronically distribute the national voter registration form, which allows students to register to vote from anywhere in the United States.*
Congress recently allowed for institutions to satisfy the compliance requirements of the law through electronic distribution of their state's voter registration form or the posting of an internet address where such a form can be downloaded.
* Note the following exceptions: New Hampshire town and city clerks will only accept this application as a request for their own mail-in absentee voter registration form. North Dakota does not have voter registration. Wyoming cannot accept this form under state law.
