Registering to Vote
MICA can assist you in obtaining voter registration materials so that you are eligible and able to vote in state and federal elections. Maryland residents can stop by Enrollment Services in the Student Services Center (Bunting Center, second floor) to obtain materials and instructions for registering to vote in Maryland.
Residents of any state can complete an online federal voter registration to register in their home states by visiting the Maryland State Board of Elections.
You can request an absentee voter ballot from your home state by contacting your local county or state board of elections, or by visiting the Federal Elections Commission (www.fec.gov) for links to your state's election website. Most states offer a downloadable version of the absentee ballot application.
Plan ahead! Most state deadlines for completing voter registration forms or absentee ballot applications are four to six weeks prior to election. Don't miss out on exercising your right to vote while you are a student.
