NOTE: Marquette receives aggregate data from TurboVote regarding numbers of users, numbers of completed voter registrations, and numbers of participants who plan to vote, but it does not receive information on individual users.

Marquette University students, faculty, and staff are not required to sign up for a Turbo Vote account as it is a voluntary process.  Links to registration and voting information are also listed on this website on the Frequently Asked Questions page (under "Can I vote absentee and/or how do I register to vote in my home state?").
