What you need to know

You are eligible to vote in local, state, and federal elections if you are a U.S. citizen and will be at least 18 years old on or before Election Day. We are happy to partner with TurboVote, a non-partisan nonprofit organization, to make voter registration quicker and easier.

Some key points to remember:

  • With TurboVote, you can register in your home state or here in Massachusetts.
  • TurboVote will send you all the required forms by U.S. mail. All you have to do is sign, apply the stamps provided, and mail the forms.
  • For most students living on campus and registered to vote in Massachusetts, your polling place will be Kresge Auditorium.
