Students: Make Sure Your Voice is Heard in 2020

Prepared by Lindsay Nielson

College students face unique barriers to voting, since they move a lot and are just starting to build political knowledge and voting habits. Voter registration may seem intimidating and complicated, but a lot of states are making it easier than ever! You can register to vote quicker than you can get a pizza delivered. If you’re a college student, you have the option of registering to vote at your campus address or at your home address—it’s up to you to decide.

It’s also a good idea to check your voter registration on a yearly basis (Google “check my voter registration [state you’re registered in]” and one of the first few results will be a link to your state’s online tool). Make sure your name and birthdate are correct and that your address is up to date.
