We are here to help you register and cast your ballot! But first things first...

Is your hometown INSIDE or OUTSIDE of Monroe County?

Inside Monroe County  Outside Monroe County 

So, your hometown is inside Monroe County. There are some important things to consider...

Do you have a way to get back to your hometown for elections? 

Yes No

That's great that you have a way to get to your hometown. You have two options of where you want to be registered...

Which candidates and positions are you most interested in voting for?

Candidates and positions in my hometown Candidates and positions in Brockport

As a college student, you have the right to pick your address for voter registrations — using either your home address or your school address. There are things to consider with each option, and only you can decide which is the best way to go!

Unfortunately, you are not able to request an absentee ballot because you will be within the county on Election Day. It is recommended that you register to vote using your Brockport address if you think you won't be able to make it to the polls on Election Day. 

That's okay with me  That's unfortunate - I will take my chances and try to find a ride

Register with Brockport Address

This is a great option if you do not have a way to get home and are not partial to being able to vote for candidates in your hometown.

To do this, simply complete your Voter Registration Form in the Community Development Office – College Union 203 or at a Brock the Vote event.

When completing the form, use your school address (including building and room #) for the “Address Where You Live” (block 8).

On Election Day, your polling location will be within walking distance so you can feel free to head to the polls at any time!

Register with Home Address

This is a great option if you prefer to cast your vote for candidates in your hometown.

To do this, simply complete your Voter Registration Form in the Community Development Office – College Union 203 or at a Brock the Vote event.

When completing the forms, use your home address for the “Address Where You Live” (block 8). Then put your school address for the “Address Where You Receive Mail” (block 9).

On Election Day, make sure you find time to make it out to your polling location!


So, your hometown is outside of Monroe County. You now have a choice to make...

Which is more important to you?

HOW I vote (in person or by mail)  WHO I can vote for (local candidates at home or Brockport)

As a college student, you have the right to pick your address for voter registrations — using either your home address or your school address. There are things to consider with each option, and only you can decide which is the best way to go!

If you feel HOW you vote is most important...

Which voting method do you prefer?

In Person   By Mail

If you feel WHO you vote for is most important...

Which positions and candidates would you rather have a say in?

Candidates and positions in my hometown  Candidates and positions in Brockport
