Constitution Day Voter Registration Drive
Monday, September 17
Gallery, Seymour Union
It’s election season. Make sure your vote counts! Register to vote in Galesburg, or find out how to get an absentee ballot for your home. If you are eligible to vote in the U.S., then make sure you’ve registered. Galesburg closes registration 27 days before an election.
Celebrate Constitution Day by making sure you’re prepared to vote.
To register to vote you must be:
• A citizen of the United States.
• 18 years of age or older by the date of the election.
• A resident of your precinct for 30 days by the date of the election.
Students who are 17, but will be 18 on or before the election, must register to vote before the close of registration, even if not 18 before the close of registration, to vote in the upcoming election at the polls. The voter ID card will be held until your birthday. It is not necessary to have your voter’s ID card to vote.
