Voter Registration

Columbia encourages all students to participate in the electoral process by registering to vote and voting in every election. To expedite this process, voter registration forms for the State of Illinois are available to students in the Records office.

According to Illinois law, students must register to vote at least 28 days prior to each election to be eligible to vote in that election.

Students may also access voter registration forms from the Illinois State Board of Elections at elections.state.il.us.

The National Mail Voter Registration Form allows students to register to vote from anywhere in the United States. Students may access this form by visiting fec.gov/votregis/vr.shtml.
