How do I Register as a Liberty Student?

Live on-campus? You can register to vote with your on-campus address and vote in the Montview Alumni Ballroom on Election Day. You must include your Flames Box number in the residence address line of your voter registration application. You can find your campus address in your housing portal, which you can access in your ASIST account. *Need help finding your on-campus address? Email residencelife@liberty.edu.*

DO NOT REMOVE the /S/ on the signature line of your application. Without it, an e-signature cannot be accepted.

Example on-campus address:
1971 University Blvd. Flames Box 123456
Lynchburg, VA 24515

Live off-campus? You can register to vote with your off campus address, but you cannot vote in the Montview Alumni Ballroom. Please visit this website to locate your voting precinct so you know where to cast your vote on Election Day. Once you’re ready to register, you can fill out the Virginia voter registration application here.

Not registering with your local Virginia address? You will either have to travel on Election Day to the precinct where you are currently registered to vote or request an absentee ballot to mail in your vote. See the drop down menu at the top of this page to locate your state’s laws regarding absentee voting and to confirm or initiate your voter registration in another state.


Why Should I Register in Virginia?


During your time at Liberty University, Lynchburg and Virginia are your home. Registering to vote locally allows you to have a direct impact in choosing who will represent you in local, state, and federal office during your time in Virginia.

You can always change your voter registration back to your home address when your time at Liberty comes to an end, but students are encouraged to register with their on or off-campus address while they are here.

Except for Alaska residents, students may change their voter registration without consequence to their dependency status on tax forms, financial aid, or changes to their driver’s license.

IMPORTANT FOR ALASKA RESIDENTS: Being registered to vote in another state will effect eligibility for the Alaska Permanent Fund. More details can be found at the Alaska Absence Guidelines and the Student Eligibility Guidelines.

.


Common Questions/Concerns


Registering to Vote Does Not Affect Your:


Federal Financial Aid

Where you register to vote will not affect federal financial aid such as Pell Grants, Perkins or Stafford loans, or your dependency status for FAFSA.


Status as a Dependent on Your Parents’ Taxes

Being registered to vote at a different address from your parents does not prevent them from claiming you as a dependent on their taxes.

IMPORTANT FOR ALASKA RESIDENTS: Being registered to vote in another state will effect eligibility for the Alaska Permanent Fund. More details can be found at the Alaska Absence Guidelines and the Student Eligibility Guidelines.


Tuition Status

Being deemed out-of-state for tuition purposes does not prevent you from registering to vote in Virginia.
