National Voter Registration Act
SUNY-Specific Information and Resources
Provost Office Website Statement on Voter Registration: "We, at the State University, strive to inform students and employees of voter registration procedures and to provide students with voter registration information and forms. It is important for college students to register to vote because many of the issues that impact students, such as education, war, and employment, are directly impacted by elected officials. The New York State Election Law mandates that State University campuses develop a program to provide each student with a voter registration application at the beginning of each school year and during January and February of a presidential election year. This website was developed as a resource for campus professionals and includes the New York State Education Law from 2008, the National Voter Registration Act, best practices for campuses to enhance voter registration efforts, useful links including absentee ballots and voter registration forms, and information for National Voter Registration Act Coordinators."
