Gonzaga Voter Education

The Gonzaga experience fosters a mature commitment to dignity of the human person, social justice, diversity, intercultural competence, global engagement, solidarity with the poor and vulnerable, and care for the planet. As ZAGS we are expected to be civically engaged. Becoming a registered and educated voter is a great way to be engaged in our local and national community!

You must be registered to vote in your home state. To register to vote, you will need to complete a voter registration form for your state and request an absentee ballot. Make sure to change your MAILING address to your Gonzaga MSC. DO NOT change your permanent address. 

Turbo Vote is a non-profit free website that can also help you register to vote and find out information about voting in your state. 

 

After you have registered to vote in your home state. You will need to request an absentee ballot. Make sure to change your MAILING address to your Gonzaga MSC. DO NOT change your permanent address.

 

Absentee ballots require one to two stamps depending upon the weight of the ballot. Many states require they receive an absentee ballot by election day. Keep in mind that it may take a week for a letter to arrive from Spokane, ergo mail your ballot early!!!

Beginning October 16, students may bring their out of state ballot to the Center for Student Involvement, Hemmingson 304 and collect a free stamp for their ballot. 

 

Washington State only uses mail ballots and does not have in-person voting. Therefore, make sure to register to vote and request an absentee ballot come to your MSC stop!

We will have a ballot box on Gonzaga's campus for Washington State Ballots. We will deliver the ballots to the election office - no stamp required!
