Get Out the Vote

Get Out the Vote (GOTV) is a campaign to raise awareness about voter responsibility. We want to make sure your voice is heard in all upcoming elections.

Your first step is to register to vote. DePaul University has partnered with TurboVote to make voter registration online or via mail simple. The dates for registering to vote online or through the mail have now passed, but you can still register to vote in person up to election day on November 8. Learn more about that process here​.
