92% of students registered to vote in 2020. Join the Husker Vote Coalition and register to vote on September 20, which is National Voter Registration day.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 20, Huskers can visit the Huskers Vote Coalition booth on Nebraska Union Plaza to register to vote, check their voter registration status, sign up for vote-by-mail and learn their polling place for the Nov. 8 election.

Students can also visit a table located in front of the Nebraska East Union Cafeteria to check their voter registration status from 4 to 6 p.m. Students can register to vote in Nebraska or their home state (as long as they meet the registration deadlines and requirements).

Husker Vote Coalition has tools to ensure Huskers are prepared to cast a ballot in the upcoming general election, regardless of the location or state in which they plan to cast their ballot. They can also register voters if they are not currently signed up.

Huskers can also register to vote online.
