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.
