Register to Vote
ARE YOU REGISTERED?
As a student at the University of Iowa, you can either register to vote in Iowa City or in your hometown. Here is a quick FAQ to answer all your voter registration questions!
Am I eligible to vote?
- If you are 18 years of age and a U.S. citizen, you are eligible to vote in local, state, and federal elections.
How do I know if I'm registered to vote?
- Check out this handy tool to see if you're registered to vote, and where you're registered!
Should I register to vote in Iowa City or in my hometown?
- That is entirely up to you -- registering in Iowa City allows you to vote in local city council and school board elections, and participate on campus in the 2020 Presidential Caucuses.
Registering at home will mean voting in your own local elections, either in person or through the mail via absentee ballot.
If you wish to vote in Iowa and are from out of state, you will need to register in person. If you are from the state of Iowa and wish to update your registration to your current address in Iowa City, you may do so online OR in person.
