Election Voter Registration Information

As a citizen of the United States, you have the privilege to vote on your county, state and national leaders. As part of the Higher Education Act of 1998, Congress directed schools receiving Federal financial aid to assist students who have not yet registered to vote. In essence, if a Title IV (Federal Student Aid) participating school is located in a state that requires voter registration prior to election day and/or does not allow the ability to register at the time of voting, then the school must make a good faith effort to distribute voter registration forms to its federal student aid eligible students.

To meet this requirements, federal student aid recipients attending AMU will receive an annual reminder via bulletin board flyers to complete voter registration.

Registration Deadline
The deadline to register or re-register to vote for any election is 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 15th calendar day before that election. If you submit an application after this time, your application will still be processed for future elections. If you recently registered online, please wait at least 24 hours before checking your registration status. To register online you will need:

  • Your California driver license or California identification card number

  • The last four digits of your social security number 

  • Your date of birth

Your information will be provided to the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to retrieve a copy of your DMV signature. If you do not have a California driver license or California identification card, you can still use this form to apply to register to vote by completing the online interview by 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the 15th calendar day before an election.
