Where should I plan to vote?

Calvin students may register to vote using a college address, or a hometown or parent’s address. If you register at your hometown address and want to vote while attending college, you must remember to request an absentee ballot before the election. Check with the your state's election board for the exact deadline.

Congressional Mandate
