Highlanders Vote!

Radford University is committed to educating students to be prepared for a lifetime of leadership in their communities. That leadership starts with exercising their civic right and responsibility to vote. This page contains voter registration and election information for Highlanders.

Register to Vote

The Student Government Association has partnered with Virginia21 to deliver TurboVote to help students register to vote, request absentee ballots, and remind them about upcoming elections and voter deadlines. TurboVote will send a completed voter registration form via mail that must then be signed and dropped in the mail. Absentee forms, if requested, will follow. It is all pre-addressed and pre-stamped so students don’t need to find or buy stamps to register.

Registration Deadlines

General Elections: 22 days before
Primary Elections: 22 days before
Special Elections: 13 days before
Special (Called by Governor): 7 days before
