Voter Registration Information

Union Institute & University is strongly committed to social relevance and community. The university encourages students and employees to take full advantage of their rights and fulfill their responsibilities as citizens by registering to vote, voting, and, whenever possible, participating in the political process at the community, state and/or national level.

The Higher Education Opportunity Act requires colleges and universities to make available to students information on how to register to vote, including access to acceptable voter registration forms. 

The website for the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) provides a wide range of resources for individuals seeking to register to vote, as well as providing voter registration rules and regulations for each state and territory.
