Make a STATEment, VOTE!

Students, faculty and staff: Register to VOTE!
Georgia State University has made it easy for students, faculty and staff to register to vote. When there is an election in your area, you will be sent a reminder to ensure you never miss another election. TurboVote is an application that makes voting easy. When you sign up, TurboVote keeps track of your elections, local and national. And if you need to get registered, update your voter registration, or request an absentee ballot, we’ll get you all the forms and information you need, when you need them.
TurboVote keeps track of registration and vote-by-mail rules for all 50 states, so you don’t have to.
