The Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School encourages our eligible students to register to vote. The 1998 reauthorization of the federal Higher Education Act includes a requirement that higher education institutions make a “good faith effort” to make voter registration forms available to all enrolled students, including providing links to downloadable forms. This federal legislation supports the Graduate School’s goal of educating our students as leaders both in their field of study as well as engaged citizens in their Minnesota communities. Can You Vote in Minnesota? Students can vote in Minnesota if you meet the Minnesota resident requirements. If you consider your residence in Minnesota as your home and have no intention of moving, you may be eligible to vote in Minnesota. Remember, you can only vote from one residence in each election. Register to Vote Once you determine you are eligible to vote in Minnesota, it is a good idea to register to vote before Election Day. Visit the Minnesota Secretary of State website to download a voter registration application or register online. For questions or printed voter registration forms, please contact: LeAnn Brown Director of Enrollment and Student Services Cork Building, V-150D LBrown@HazeldenBettyFord.edu 1-651-213-4175 In Minnesota, you may also register and vote on Election Day with appropriate proof of residence. Visit the Minnesota Secretary of State website for specific information about registering on Election Day. If you are going to be somewhere other than your Minnesota residence on Election Day (including out of the country or studying abroad), you can still vote by absentee ballot. Visit the Minnesota Secretary of State website for absentee ballot applications and instructions.
