Do you know a student heading to college this fall? Freshman year is a time of big transitions, and voting may be one of them. Some students may be voting for the first time, or faced with the choice of transferring their registration or applying for an absentee or mail-in ballot. 

If your student needs to register to vote, they can register with their local (on-or-off-campus) OR home address. Either way, they need to register by October 23, 2023! If a college student votes at their home address they can request a mail-in or absentee ballot by October 31, 2023. Click here for more voter information specific to college students. 

As the school year begins, we pray for all who have begun this season of education, and for those who will care for them as they are away from home. 

If your college student needs community, support, faith formation, or a home-cooked meal, be sure they get connected to one of the excellent Lutheran Campus Ministries near them! They’re not just for Lutheran colleges!
