Voter Registration

Student registering to voteOn-campus residents may vote in the Student Union Building (SUB) Down Under if they are registered in Adair County. Voters should consult their Voter ID cards to find their polling location. If you recently changed addresses or registered to vote and do not have a voter ID card, you should contact the Adair County Clerk’s Office to make sure you are registered.

Truman State University strongly encourages students to register to vote and to exercise that privilege and responsibility in local, state, and federal elections.

Rock the Vote Voting

 The right to vote is a significant privilege and responsibility as a United States citizen. The Higher Education Act of 1998 requires institutions of higher education to make a “good faith effort” to get their students registered to vote.  This website partially fulfills that institutional responsibility under federal law.
