"I voted" stickers scattered across a white table.

Interested in registering for or voting in the next election? 

UB Votes is a non-partisan, campus-wide effort charged with increasing voter registration and engagement among UB community members in national, state-wide, local, and campus elections by uniting divergent efforts from across the university into one concerted initiative.

On Election Day, UB Votes will provide free transportation through UB Stampede Shuttles to the polling site at Sweet Home High School for students registered to vote with an on-campus address. See table below for departure times and locations.

Register to Vote and Learn About Voting in New York State

If you want to vote in an election, you must be registered to vote. Please note that the following information is only for domestic (not international) students.

Important Information:

  • To vote at your local “school” address in Erie County, put your school address as the address where you live (line #8).
  • If you would like to vote at your permanent address but will not be in your hometown on Election Day, and you are not registered to vote, then send the voter registration form to the Board of Elections Office for your home county after checking off the box that says "Yes, I need an application for an Absentee Ballot."
  • If you are already registered to vote and wish to vote by absentee ballot, download the absentee ballet application.
  • To vote outside of New York State, you will need to register in your home state.  You can find the voter registration form for your state at www.RockTheVote.com.
