Use this tool to request an absentee ballot to vote by mail

In some states, this can be done entirely online. However, in most states, you will need to print, complete, sign, and mail a form to complete the process. NU Votes can help with printing and mailing.

Review the absentee voting rules for your state to ensure you are eligible to vote by mail and must submit a request form to do so. Submit your request well in advance of your state’s deadline; we recommend at least 30 days before Election Day.

Important Notes

NU Votes is a non-partisan voter engagement initiative administered by Northwestern University’s Center for Civic Engagement. Northwestern does not endorse or oppose any candidate or organization in connection with any political campaign or election.

Please Note: NU Votes is simply an effort to help students register and vote themselves. Students are responsible for working with their own local election officials to verify local laws and policies about voting in their respective districts, and to ensure that their registration and/or voting materials have been properly processed. If you do not receive accurate registration and/or voting materials from your local election officials in a timely manner, please contact them to follow up.
