Voter Registration Day

Dear Students,

Tuesday, September 27, is National Voter Registration Day. The November presidential election is fast approaching and if you are a U.S. citizen over the age of 18, you have the right to vote in this election.

Boston College believes that every student has a responsibility to be an engaged community member. To that end, we have partnered with TurboVote to provide you with the information and materials you need to vote in every election from local to presidential.

TurboVote allows you to easily register to vote online, verify or update your voter registration, request an absentee ballot form by mail, and sign up for text and/or e-mail election reminders. You may learn more about this service by visiting TurboVote.

As a student at Boston College, you have the choice where to register to vote, and whether you vote in Massachusetts or another state, we encourage you to take advantage of this resource.

Voting not only allows each individual to make their voice heard, it also empowers our community to play a role in shaping decisions that affect us all.

So join us by registering to vote online today by visiting TurboVote.

In closing, I would like to make you aware that there are many upcoming civic engagement events that you can get involved with including the opportunity to watch the first presidential debate tonight at Robsham Theater. To view a comprehensive list, visit our Civic Engagement Website or the University Events Calendar.
