    Voter Registration 
    As a part of the Higher Education Amendment, Dean College must provide students with the opportunity to register to vote. Accordingly, to request a mail-in voter registration form, visit the Massachusetts state website.

    Please note that students cannot register to vote via the Internet, but they can request a voter registration form. Students must fill out the form completely and return it to their city or town hall. Remember that students will not be registered to vote until they return the completed voter registration form to their local city or town hall.

    The local clerk will thereafter provide students with acknowledgment of their voter registration. If students do not receive an acknowledgment of their voter registration within a reasonable time, they should check with their local clerk for more information.
