The following policy applies to the UNMC Financial Aid Office.
The voter registration requirement was included in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (also known as the “NVRA” or “motor voter law”). In essence, if a participating school is 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 information/registration forms to its students.
Nebraska residents can register to vote in Nebraska via an online registration process. The URL for Nebraska voter registration will be sent to all currently enrolled students 60 days before the deadline to register in years when there are elections for federal office or for Nebraska’s Governor. Students who are not Nebraska residents will be sent the URL for the National Voter Registration site.
UNMC Office of Financial Aid staff will be responsible for sending voter registration information as described above.
