Dear Illinois Students,

Today is National Voter Registration Day. Democracy relies on each of you to participate in helping to shape our campus community and your communities at home. Voting is one way that each of you can participate in civic engagement and it is part of our collective responsibility as citizens of the United States of America.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has partnered with TurboVote to make it easy for you to register to vote, update your voter information (i.e. change of address), and get reminders and information about voting/poll locations specific to where you register.

TurboVote has options to register, including online (if your State has this option), or an option to receive a completed registration form with a pre-addressed stamped envelope. Registering to vote is as simple as signing a form, sealing an envelope, and mailing it in. If you choose to register anywhere in Illinois, there is an online option.

If you are already registered to vote, you can also sign up with TurboVote to receive text and/or email reminders to stay up to date with early-voting/election day reminders and polling place notifications.

Again, participation in voting is one way to engage in our democracy. We hope that you take the time to make your voices heard. Learn more about voter registration.
