Voter Information

The University of Evansville strives to teach its students social responsibility. One key aspect to social responsibility is participating in the civic duty of voting for elected officials and legislative processes. For many students, they will vote for the first time while they are here at the University of Evansville. It is our goal to educate students on the process by which to engage in this civic duty. Whether you are resident of Indiana or not; whether you choose to vote here or not, we have directions for you.

First, you must decide from where you wish to vote. Depending on issues that are important to you or where you wish to call home, you can either register to vote from your permanent address or from your temporary address here at the University. The state of Indiana requires that all persons registered to vote in the state of Indiana must have a state-issued ID in order to cast a vote. This would include an Indiana Driver's License, an Indiana ID Card, a Military ID Card or a U.S. Passport.

Next, you will need to register to vote. You can register to vote in the state of Indiana online; you also can apply for an Indiana Absentee Ballot.

If you wish to register to vote in your home state or request an absentee ballot from the location you are registered to vote from, use this link.
