  • Students, you may register either at your family address or at your college address.  You need to decide what works best for you. (More information Here)

  • Take the Pro-Con Presidential Quiz .  (Note: This is non-partisan.  The League will never tell you who to vote is your choice!)
  • You do not have to vote for every office. Learn what you can, but you may leave some spaces blank. Your ballot is still good.
  • If you have trouble, ask the poll workers for help.  That is why they volunteer.
