​​Voting Frequently Asked Questions

College students can register to vote in their home state or the state their college is in, but not both. Generally, you can register  in person, online or via mail.  DePaul has made it even easier for you to register to vote by partnering with TurboVote. Visit TurboVote and register to vote now!
If you're not sure if you are registered to vote , TurboVote can help you with that, too. As part of registering for the service, they will check the name and address you enter against a list of current registered voters in Illinois, or you can use their registration lookup service. Remember, though, you can only be registered to vote and can only vote in one state--either your home state (if applicable), or the state your college or university is in (Illinois). If you are not sure if you are registered to vote in your home state, you will have to check  with your state's State Board of Elections.
It can really depend. However, it can take as little as 5-10 minutes. 
You'll want to use your campus mailing address and not the address of your residence hall.

You can register to vote in Illinois  with TurboVote. If you need a computer, visit the Office of Student Involvement during their normal business hours. Let the staff know you'd like to register to vote and they'll direct you to an available computer. You can also register in person at a number of  locations across the city or via mail. You will need two forms of identification with your current address. Learn more here.
 
To register to vote in your home state, you will have to refer to the local rules, laws and procedures for registering to vote in that state, and when you vote, you will do so using an absentee ballot, so be sure to request your ballot with enough time to receive it and send it back prior to the election closing.
