Make a Difference – Register and Vote!

The business of the University is the education of citizens – the life training of our nation’s next generation of leaders. As part of enhancing citizenship training, promoting civic responsibility, and transmitting UCSB’s core values of scholarship, leadership and citizenship, every member of the campus community--students, faculty and staff -- are encouraged to register and vote.

UCSB provides a number of options for registering to vote:

On campus:

A Voter Registration Drive, sponsored by the Gauchos Vote Coalition (Associated Students EVPSA, CALPIRG, and the Voter Registration Volunteer Coalition), typically takes place on campus during fall and spring quarters, depending on the election year schedule. 

**Due to COVID-19, this option is currently unavailable; however, we encourage you to look into the other options shared below.**

For campus voter registration information or assistance, contact the Office of Student Life at 893-4737. 

On GOLD:

UCSB students are able to complete a voter registration form on the UCSB Gaucho On-Line Data (GOLD) system at the same time they are searching and registering for academic classes.

Online:

Registering online is a very fast and easy process. By registering through the link below, you can increase the number of registered students at UCSB. California Student Vote also provides a list of resources and tools necessary to get you to feel comfortable while voting. Student Vote could be used as an alternative in case you are not living in California by the time you vote. Yo will need your social security number, a driver's license or identification card number.
