UMGC Student Voting

Find information on voting, registration, and other election-related information.

As a civic duty and right to those who are eligible, voting is an important role for citizens to participate in to elect officials who represent their values. Voting is a crucial element to the democratic process on the local, state, and federal level. At UMGC, we support our students through providing information and tools to help them fulfill their civic duty of voting.
