Pioneers Vote 2020

The information below is provided by Student Engagement as a resource for Lewis & Clark student voters in:
• registering to vote in their home state (if you are not already registered to vote in Oregon)
• updating voter registration
• understanding voter registration deadlines in their home state, and
• how to get involved in voter advocacy
• providing a list of voter advocacy and education resources

As a part of a long standing tradition of exploring, learning, and working together, Lewis & Clark College values and protects the freedom of students, faculty, and staff to express political views, to exercise their right to vote, and to participate in the electoral process. At the same time, to retain its status as a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, Lewis & Clark must not participate or intervene in any political campaign, on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for political office, issue, or initiative.

Voting In College

As a college student, you have the option of voting in Oregon or your home state. However, you cannot be registered in both locations. If you register to vote in your home state, you will need to sign-up for an Absentee Ballot and regulations vary by state. Be sure to learn more about your state’s regulations below. You have the right to vote in any state where you have a temporary or permanent residence.

If you have questions about this, please don’t hesitate to contact the Office of Student Engagement.
