Go to USC Turbovote’s website, click get started, and fill out your information. If you live in USC housing, use the “select a campus address” feature. Otherwise, fill out your mailing address. You will be redirected to the CA/your state’s SoS website to fill out the necessary registration forms. If not available online, or if the DMV does not have your signature on file for that particular state (ie, you’re registering in California but your permanent address is elsewhere), you may have to print out and mail in the form.

Make sure you’re option in to election reminders so you remember to cast your ballot when it’s time!

Yes, you can! If you've never registered before, you can simply register using your local address (if you live on campus, you can use your dorm address). If you have previously registered using an out-of-state address, you can register in California as long as you update your registration with your home state as well.

No, you do not. However, certain primaries (depending on your state) may be open to only voters registered as party members are allowed to vote on the candidates that will proceed to the general election. 

Note: In the state of California, there is an option to register as an 'American Independent' which is a political party rather than registering as an 'Independent'. To register as an independent, simply check no party preference

Depends on your state. Some states offer a full online registration, while others require you to mail in your completed form with your details to the Secretary of State office. You can find out what your state requires using our TurboVote site.Make sure you’re option in to election reminders so you remember to cast your ballot when it’s time!

You should re-register or update your registration whenever you move or change mailing address (this includes moving between on-campus dorms or off-campus residences), change political affiliation, or change your name.
