In order to vote in the General Election on Tuesday, November 6th, you need to have already registered to vote (and, in fact, registered by October 9th).
How do I know if I’m registered?
- If you’ve received a voter registration card in the mail, you’re registered.
- If you don’t have a voter registration card, you can check if you’re registered.
Where do I go to vote?
- For those who live on campus, the polling location is the First Presbyterian Church on the northwest corner of Broadway and Main, just down the hill from the main entrance of campus.
- The polls are open from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm, and shuttles will be running from Burton Morgan from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
What do I need to bring with me when I vote?
- When you get to the polling place, you will be asked your name and current (i.e. school) address. You will also be asked to provide proof of identity.
- In general, the most common form of ID is a current Ohio driver’s license, even if it doesn’t have your school address.
- For those without an Ohio driver’s license, any one of the following are acceptable forms of ID:
- A current utility bill (which can be obtained at the Denison Bookstore), or
- A recent paycheck that has your school address, or
- A recent bank statement that has your school address.
Note: This information about the identification requirements is from the Ohio Secretary of State.
What if I don’t have any of the accepted forms of ID, can I still vote?
- Yes, but not on the voting machines. You will have to fill out a form to vote by provisional ballot. Once the information you provide is reviewed and verified by the board of elections, your vote will be counted.
