Each year, the Office of Student Affairs hosts a week of activities for Constitution Day which includes a voter registration drive, passing out pocket-sized constitutions, an Annual Voter Registration Letter sent to students, and a free-speech area. In addition to events targeted towards students, RSU presents the Constitution Award to a distinguished Oklahoman each year.

Voter Registration

Do you need to register to vote, update your address, request an absentee ballot, find your polling location, view a sample ballot, or change your political party?

  • Oklahoma Residents: Oklahoma State Election Board’s voter registration portal.
  • You can also deposit completed Oklahoma voter registration forms in the blue mail boxes in the following locations:
    • Claremore: DCTC first floor across from Hillcat Hut & Stratton Taylor Library, 2nd floor
    • Bartlesville: First floor lobby foyer across from campus police booth
    • Pryor: Main Academic Services office
  • Out-of-State Students: National Mail Voter Registration Form or visit your state election board’s website for more information.

Text & Email Notifications: Rogers State University encourages students, faculty, and staff to utilize TurboVote is an email and text message voter notification system organized by Democracy Works, a 501(c)(3) organization. While RSU does not guarantee the accuracy of text or email notifications from third-party organizations, TurboVote is used by dozens of colleges across the country to help students receive information about election deadlines, absentee ballots, and primary elections. We encourage voters to visit for up-to-date information. TurboVote and similar services can offer friendly reminders but may not be endorsed by your state election board.


It’s your civic right. Voting in local, state, and federal elections help shape the communities you want to live in. If you aren’t registered to vote, you may be unable to cast a ballot on an election day.
It depends on your state. In the State of Oklahoma, voter registration applications must be mailed or delivered to the state or a county election board 24 days before the next election. In other states, please check with your state election board; some states require voter registration in advance of an election while some permit same-day registration.
That is up to you. Many students find it convenient to change their voter registration to Rogers County if they plan to stay at RSU for more than a year. Registering to vote with your dorm or off-campus apartment address may make it easier to receive an absentee ballot or vote locally. Students who register with their school address also find voting early at the Rogers County Election Board office (located four minutes from campus) more convenient than traveling home to a polling location.
It depends on your state. In the State of Oklahoma, residents who are U.S. citizens, are 18 years of age or older and have not had their voting rights taken away are eligible to vote. In other states, please check with your state election board for specific voting laws. Generally, persons adjudicated to be mentally incapacitated by a court or are still incarcerated, serving parole, or on probation after being convicted of a felon are ineligible.
The RSU Civic Engagement Project welcomes all students, faculty, or staff interested in getting registered to vote. Under Oklahoma state law, any person can assist with voter registration applications; however, the RSU Civic Engagement Project will provide training or pair you with an experienced volunteer before assisting your fellow Hillcats. If you are interested, please contact the Office of Student Affairs.
