Towson University students, faculty and staff can register to vote regardless of their
home state or county. TurboVote provides you access to all required documents, absentee
ballots and deadlines.
Civic Duty to Vote
Voting for college students is difficult, given that many are away from home. Students
from other counties or states can sign-up through TurboVote and have their absentee ballot sent to their residence hall address or students can
use their residence hall address if they want to vote in Baltimore County, Maryland.
Students can also vote on Election Day at their specific polling location. The polling
location for all resident students is the University Union, Loch Raven. All other
students can find their particular polling location by visiting the MD Board of Elections website.
(NOTE: Recent legislation in the state of Maryland now allows ex-offenders to vote regardless
of the status of their parole or probation.)
