Temple Votes is committed to providing comprehensive voter registration, education, and mobilization efforts at Temple University. It is a non-partisan initiative led by a committee of students, faculty, administrators, and voter education organizations. We have been designated as a Voter Friendly Campus by the Campus Vote Project and NASPA!
Students can choose to register to vote at your address on/near or at your permanent home address. The most important things to consider are where you feel is most convenient and motivating to actually vote.
Students who wish to vote in Pennsylvania must register by October 24th, 2022.
