UMC Votes - Where Do I Vote
If you are studying away from UMC, you may vote by absentee ballot.
If you are studying abroad, learn more about your voting options while studying abroad.
All eligible students (those who are U.S. citizens and are 18 years of age or older) at the University of Minnesota Crookston are encouraged to vote in the upcoming election. If you don’t register online or by the paper form by October 18, Minnesota also has same day registration.
A roster of all on-campus students will be provided to the Polk County Board of Elections, which will allow you to vote locally in the election. All on-campus students vote at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 1214 University Ave, Crookston, MN.
Off-campus students can find their polling location using the official polling place finder on the Minnesota Secretary of State Office Website.
