How to Register to Vote

In Vermont:

For comprehensive information, refer to the Vermont Secretary of State’s College Voter Guide or general Voters page as well as the separate Register to Vote page. Each page links to a registration form you can print out.

In Washington, DC:

SIT students may be eligible to vote in the District of Columbia if they meet certain conditions. Detailed information can be obtained from the District of Columbia Board of Elections or by calling 202 727-2525 (voice) or 202 639-8916 (TTY).

In Another State:

The United States Election Assistance Commission makes available a National Mail Voter Registration Form, which can be used to register to vote, report a change of name, report a change of address, or register with a political party. The national form also contains voter registration rules and regulations for each state and territory. Another alternative is Rock the Vote.

Alternatively (recommended):

Go to the website of the state agency that handles elections in your state. Access state election websites from the US Election Assistance Commission. Most states have in-depth information on their website about how to register, the deadlines for registering, and the official state form that can be downloaded/printed out and mailed in. Remember that you will probably need to request an absentee ballot as well.

Deadlines: The US Election Assistance Commission maintains a calendar of state registration deadlines.

Caution: some states have much earlier deadlines than Vermont or DC.
