Bates + TurboVote
If Voting Were Easier, More People Would Do It
Since voting is so important to our students, we have partnered with TurboVote (and the League of Young Voters Education Fund) to make voter registration quick and easy.
TurboVote’s online service will allow you to..
- Register, or re-register to Vote (in your home state or in Maine)
- Update your address
- Request an absentee ballot
- Opt-in to receive text and email messages about Election Day, polling locations, and information about what’s on the ballot
How it Works
Once you’ve signed-up online, you’ll receive a completed national voter-registration form by mail along with a pre-addressed envelope to your local election authority. At that point, just sign the form and mail it in.
If you’re already registered, you can request just an absentee ballot to be mailed to you at your campus address.
TurboVote is a complete free service, and all postage is paid for through the League of Young Voters Education Fund.
The deadline to register to vote through TurboVote is September 25th. For more information on state by state information, including absentee ballot deadlines, check out the US Vote Foundation’s website.
