Are You Registered to Vote?
We have three questions for you ...
- Have you moved in the last five years?
- Have you changed your name?
- If you answered yes to the first two - your Voter Registration must be updated.
- Have you ever registered to vote? If no, sign up today and show the country that #TriCvotes!
Tri-C has joined with Google, fb, the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections (BOE) and thousands of partners across the country to annually celebrate American democracy with National Voter Registration Day the fourth Tuesday of each September. We are so proud to lead the County in Voter Registrations for the past three years.
Remember to Register to Vote, so your voice can be heard each election cycle. It's one way you can truly help change the world.
- All Ohioans can register/make updates online at MyOhioVote.com – with a valid address, an Ohio ID or Driver’s License, and last four digits of your SS#
- If you don’t have those at the moment, no worries. Simply fill out a paper form. Pick one up at your campus Student Life Office. FYI – Fill it out there & they’ll send it in for you!
Facts for Thought …
- In any five-year period, 45% of eligible voters will move – and voter registration doesn't’t travel with you. Each move requires you to update your address in order to keep voting.
- In half of the country’s most populous cities, less than 20% of the population voted and determined the next mayor. Register now to be heard each March and November. You can then vote from home with a Vote by Mail ballot, vote early in person at the Board of Elections in your County, or vote in person in March for the Primary and the first Tuesday in November (after the first Monday) for the General Election. #TriCvotes
