Students! Did you know that you don’t have to return to your home state or request an absentee ballot to vote in the next election? As a college student at Morgan State University, you may be able elect to claim Maryland as your home for the period of time that you remain a student here. This will allow you to vote in Maryland until you choose to move elsewhere.
You must register to take advantage of your opportunity to vote in Maryland. Registering is easy at a local voter registration site and you may even be able to register online. You will need a government-issued photo ID such as a Maryland driver’s license (NOT your MSU student ID card) or your social security number and a Maryland address (e.g., 1700 E. Cold Spring Lane and the name of your residence hall). If you are a registered voter in your home state, bring your voter’s card information with you when you register. Your home district will be notified to cancel your registration there. It’s that easy!
The deadline for registering to vote in Maryland, in this election, is October 16, 2012.
