From Voter Registration to the Election Polls

Any student can register to vote in Baltimore County and can vote at Towson University during Early Voting Days. Early Voting takes place on six different days prior to election day for both the Primary and General Elections.

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 Room. 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.) 

What if I want to register in my home county or state?

In 30 states and the District of Columbia, any voter can request a mail-in (or absentee) ballot, for any reason—and every state allows commuters, college students, and others with valid reasons to vote absentee. Please sign up to learn more about your state’s rules.
