Claremont McKenna College actively encourages students to register to vote. Registering and voting are important aspects of your rights and responsibilities as an informed citizen. The following information is provided to assist you in registering to vote either in California or in your home state.
In order to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 years old at the time of the next election. As a college student you may register either in California using your college residential address or at home using your permanent home address.
Our voter registration tool is available for registration in any state. If you wish to register in California and live on-campus, use the name of your residence hall as your residential/home address. If you wish to register in your home state, use your home address. Some states do not have online voter registration. If your state does not, you will need to print out the registration form and mail it in.
For information regarding California registration deadlines please see the California State Board of Elections website: http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/.
