Register at School or Home

Students have a decision about where to register to vote.

You have a right to register to vote at the address you consider the place where you live, whether that is your family's home or the place where you attend school. You should update your registration anytime this home address changes.

You may only be registered and vote in one location.

What Type of ID Do I Need to Register?

Oklahoma’s voter registration form asks for your Oklahoma driver’s license or the last four digits of your Social Security number. Be sure to provide one of these numbers if you have it.

What Type of ID Do I Need to Vote?

All Oklahoma voters must present ID before casting a ballot in person on Election Day or during early voting. Voters may present a voter ID card issued by their county election board, or ID issued by the U.S. government, Oklahoma government, or federally recognized tribal government that provides the voter’s name and photograph and that is current as of the date of voting, unless it is valid indefinitely.

You can request a voter ID card and find more information about Oklahoma’s voter ID requirements at:

Common Questions/Concerns

Does Registering to Vote Affect my Federal Financial Aid?

Where you register to vote will not affect federal financial aid such as Pell Grants, Perkins or Stafford loans, or your dependency status for FAFSA.

Does Registering to Vote Affect my Status as a Dependent on My Parents’ Taxes?

Being registered to vote at a different address from your parents does not prevent them from claiming you as a dependent on their taxes.

Does Registering to Vote impact my Tuition Status?

Being deemed out-of-state for tuition purposes does not prevent you from choosing to register to vote in your campus community.


Will registering to vote in Oklahoma affect my driver’s license or car registration?

As a full-time student in Oklahoma, you may have to make these changes regardless of whether you register to vote in Oklahoma. For more information, contact the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety.
