Registration Details

Register to Vote in Massachusetts

As a student at Suffolk University and a member of the greater Boston community, you have the option to register to vote in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Voter application forms will available in the Political Science & Legal Studies Department, 73 Tremont (10th floor), and in the Suffolk University Center for Community Engagement, Sawyer Building, 8 Ashburton Place (Room 824).

Resident of Massachusetts

If you are a Massachusetts resident with a state-issued identification card, you may register to vote online.

A printable version of the Massachusetts Voter Registration Form [PDF] can be accessed online to be completed by hand. Any forms completed by hand should be brought to the Suffolk University Center for Community Engagement.

Non-Resident Student

If you are NOT a resident of Massachusetts and wish to register in Massachusetts, you are required to complete a voter registration form by hand. Without a state-issued identification card, the state cannot verify your signature digitally and thereby requires that you manually fill out the form.

When filling out the form, a few additional qualifications apply for out-of-state students. As a Suffolk University student without permanent residency in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, you must list your residential address as your dorm name and room number or the address of your residency.
