Online voter registration resources for Governors State University students and community members
In an open letter to the community, President Maimon urged students to “Make sure that you are registered to vote and that you take your civic responsibilities seriously.”
Ensuring that every member of our community votes is central to GSU’s mission to serve as a vigorous public square by promoting active and engaged citizenship in its students and the regional community.
GSU Rocks The Vote!
If you desire a personal touch, Student Senate members are also available to register you to vote through their GSU Rocks the Vote campaign. Our Student Senate members are deputy registrars and can register anyone residing in the state of Illinois, no matter what county you reside in! To register, stop by the Student Senate office located in A-2122 on Student Row in the A-Wing, or register during any of the GSU Rock's The Vote campaigns on campus.
