Student Outreach

The beginning of the school year is an ideal time to register students, as freshman may be voting for the first time, and upperclassman may have recently changed addresses.
  • A federal law, the 1998 Higher Education Act, requires all colleges and universities to make voter registration forms available to all students. The mammoth law, first enacted in 1965, authorizes most federal student-aid programs and contains numerous regulations that apply to colleges and universities.
  • A 1979 Supreme Court decision ensures that students are legally allowed to register at their college residence address.
  • State Election Code Regarding Student Registration

  • 04-Oct-2006: Contacted Dana Quittner, Director of Intergovernmental Relations, Economic Development, and Public Information for the GCCCD. Asked her to confirm that GCCCD is in compliance with this law.
