Southern Illinois University encourages all students to participate in the electoral process by registering to vote and voting. You must register to vote no later than 28 days before the election in which you wish to vote. You may register to vote in person at the Election Authority
in the county and precinct where you maintain your permanent residency. Alternatively, you may register to vote by completing and mailing an Illinois Voter Registration Application to the Election Authority
in your county and precinct of permanent residency. Illinois Voter Registration Applications are available online
or on campus at the Service Center, first floor of Rendleman Hall.
Additional information, including registration requirements, and information regarding absentee voting (pdf document requiring Adobe Acrobat Reader) is available at the Illinois State Board of Elections web site: http://www.elections.state.il.us/
