The Voter Registration and Empowerment Initiative creates and implements a plan each year to ensure that all students at Brooklyn College receive information about voter registration, voter rights and the poll worker initiative.
We hope to empower and engage all students to take advantage of their right to vote. Use your voice, and vote regularly.
Under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, the Center for Student Disability Services is an agency-based registration site, where students are offered the opportunity to become registered voters. Applications are available in 138 Roosevelt Hall. For more information, please visit the State Board of Elections.
In order to be eligible to register to vote, you must:
- be a U.S. citizen by birth or a naturalized U.S. citizen,
- be at least 18 years of age and a New York State resident for at least 30 days prior to the primary or general election,
- not be in jail or on parole for a felony conviction,
- not claim the right to vote elsewhere, and
- be registered approximately one month prior to any election.
You need to re-register if any of the conditions below applies to you:
- You have changed your address since the last time you voted or registered to vote.
- You wish to change your party affiliation.
- You have changed your name since last voting.
