How Disclosed: 

Voter registration forms made widely available and provided to each enrolled student.

Office/Person Responsible:

Student Affairs

Each institution must:

  • Make a good faith effort to distribute a mail voter registration form (for federal elections and state elections for governor or other State chief executive) to each student enrolled in a degree or certificate program and physically in attendance at the institution;
  • Make the voter registration form widely available to students at the institution; and
  • Request the forms from the state 120 days prior to the deadline for registering to vote within the state.

An institution will be considered to be in compliance with the distribution requirement if the institution electronically distributes the voter registration form or an Internet address where such a form can be downloaded. The information must be in an electronic message devoted exclusively to voter registration. This requirement does not apply to institutions in states that do not have a voter registration requirement or that allow voters to register at the time of voting.

Since Century College is located in Minnesota, a state which allows voters to register at the time of voting, this does not apply (read more on the Secretary of State's Register to Vote webpage). However, Century College does have paper forms available on campus and also conducts voter registration drives/events as well as shares information via email about electronic submissions.
