Remember that it must be received inside the county auditor’s office before polls close at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 30.

Fifth Street in Waterloo.

#PanthersVote is a unified, nonpartisan campaign to increase student participation in elections. It’s led by the Northern Iowa Student Government (NISG) and university chapters of the American Democracy Project (ADP) and Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) along with the department of political science and UNI Athletics. 

UNI has a strong tradition of civic engagement. Our student voting rate during the 2016 presidential election was second-highest in the nation, and the highest voter turnout of any Iowa public university in 2018. While voting is only one way students can impact society, it’s an important one. We encourage all students to let their voice be heard by casting a ballot.
