Use this tool to register to vote OR change or update your voter registration.

In most states, this can be done entirely online if you have an in-state driver’s license or state ID number. In some cases, you may need to print and mail a form to complete your registration. NU Votes can help with printing and mailing.

Know your rights! Students have a legal right to register and vote at either their school address OR their permanent address. Need help deciding?

State Voter Registration Deadlines Closing!
Voter registration is closed in most states. Some states, including Illinois, allow voters to register and vote at the same time, in person, during early voting or on Election Day. Be sure to check your state’s deadline before proceeding. If it is past your state’s deadline, contact NU Votes for advice on how to proceed.

Important Notes

Please remember: NU Votes is simply an effort to help students register 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. Elections are managed differently by state and county boards of elections across the nation, and clerical errors can sometimes occur during processing. 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.

Northwestern University does not endorse or oppose any candidate or organization in connection with this or any other political campaign or election.
