Voter Registration Information
On Tuesday, November 3, 2020, the United States general election will decide our next President and the composition of the Senate and the House of Representatives.
As an institution of higher education, Sessions College is required to make sure all enrolled students have information on their options for voter registration. Registering to vote — and then actually voting!— is an important civic responsibility for anyone who is eligible to vote.
According to this NPR article in July, more than half of voters under the age of 35 were unsure that they had the resources or information on how to vote.
Democracy begins with registering to vote, and Sessions College encourages all students who are United States citizens of voting age to exercise their right to vote!
Here are the important steps:
- Find out the options and requirements in your state for voting by mail / voting in-person.
- Make sure you are registered to vote.
- Keep general track of any deadlines if voting by mail.
- Have a plan for how and when you vote, whether it’s by mail or getting to the polls on Nov 3rd.
