Marquette University encourages our students to take part in the election process. Students eligible under state and federal law will have the opportunity to vote in the upcoming Primary Election (August 12, 2014) and the Fall General Election (November 4, 2014).
A list of campus voting locations is on the right side of this page.
Voters who register to vote on Election Day will have to provide a proof of residence document. Students who chose to use their Marquette ID as a proof of residency document must also provide a university fee payment receipt dated within nine months. Go to http://city.milwaukee.gov/vote to see a list of other acceptable proof of residence documents.
All other election rules still apply, including signing the poll book and residing in the ward for 28 days to vote at the site. For more information please see the student residency guide.
If you have registered to vote, you can verify your registration and polling location online.
The National Mail Voter Registration Form is also available for student use and additional information may be accessed online.
Voting in Wisconsin is limited to U.S. citizens who are at least 18 years old on election day, who are residents for 28 consecutive days or more of the district or ward where an election is being held, and who are not currently serving a sentence (including probation or parole) for a felony conviction.
You may instead decide to vote absentee using your home address. To learn more about absentee voting, visit Wisconsin’s Government Accountability Board or your hometown’s election commission website.
According to the Federal Student Aid Program, this information is posted to comply with Section 487(a)(23) of the Higher Education Act of 1965 that references the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) and requires higher education institutes to distribute voter registration forms to their students.
