Voter registration is easy with TurboVote

Ready to cast your ballot for the midterm elections? If not, there's still time to register to vote before Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Johns Hopkins has partnered with TurboVote, a free online service that keeps track of the voter registration regulations for all 50 states. Register to vote, get election reminders, and receive absentee ballots by filling out TurboVote's simple online form.

Students who have missed the deadline to register in their home states still have time to register as Maryland residents. The deadline to register in Maryland is 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

If you know you are going to be too busy on election day, you can vote via absentee ballot, but it must be requested by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 30, and postmarked by Tuesday, Nov. 6. An absentee ballot party is being planned for Friday, Oct. 26, on the upper quad at JHU's Homewood campus, where students will be able to put a stamp on their ballots and hand them to a representative from the post office.

Have questions about registration, voting, or seeking information about your ballot? Visit the Center for Social Concern Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., to speak to someone about informational tools and resources from now until Election Day on Nov. 6.
