To the OSU Community:

In order to participate in the November General Election, voters must be registered by Tuesday, October 16th.  If you have moved since the last election you will need to re-register using your current address to ensure your ballot will reach you. It is not legal for anyone, including the post office, to forward your ballot.

Voter registration cards are available from the Associated Students of OSU in Snell Hall, the Memorial Union, and other campus locations. You can also register to vote online at the Oregon Secretary of State’s website: http://www.oregonvotes.org/.

Students may register to vote using their university address or their permanent home address. If you choose to register to vote at home but want your ballot sent to your school address, you will also need to apply for an Absentee Ballot.

Please take the time to register to vote – and once registered, please participate in the election. If you have questions or need information about voter registration:
