Biola University actively encourages students to register to vote. Registering and voting are important aspects of your rights and responsibilities as an informed citizen. The following information is provided to assist you in registering to vote either as a Californian or as a resident of your home state. As a student, you have a constitutional right to register and vote in the place you truly consider to be “home” — whether that’s your parents’ house, your apartment, or your dorm room.

You may register to vote if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are a United States citizen
  • You are residing in California
  • You are at least 18 years of age (or will be by the date of the next election)
  • You are not in prison or on parole for conviction of a felony
  • You have not been judged by a court to be mentally incompetent to register and vote.
