Your voice matters. And in this election year, for those who can vote, it is imperative to have your voice heard. This November, millions of people will flock to the polls to have their voice heard, and we want to make sure you’re one of them.
Registering to vote can be a tricky thing. You may be wondering: Am I registered to vote? How do I register? Should I vote in my home state? Should I vote in Massachusetts? What’s the difference between an absentee ballot and a mail-in ballot? How do I request one?
We’re here to help.
On this National Voter Registration Day, we’re excited to share a feature on EmConnect that will help. The next time you log into EmConnect, you’ll be greeted by a pop-up that walks you through the voter registration process. When you log in, you’ll be prompted to sign up now! If you do, you’ll be able to learn more about registering to vote, potentially registering online, and set reminders to vote in the upcoming presidential election. You can always hit snooze by hitting Remind Me Later, and it’ll pop back up tomorrow.
Our Registrar’s Office has also put together a helpful website to assist in this process. https://www.emerson.edu/departments/registrar/transcripts-certifications/voter-registration
Please take a moment to go through the registration process. Verify you are registered to vote and educate yourself on how to follow through with your vote on Election Day. Make a plan to vote — whether it is in person, absentee, or mail-in ballot. Talk to friends, colleagues, and classmates about political issues. Ask them if they’re registered. Remind them to vote. Get out there and have your voice heard.
It’s never been more important,
