Every election cycle in November, Maricopa county voters have the opportunity not only to
participate in the selection of a new US President, but also to help decide issues of particular interest
to the Maricopa Community College District. Thanks to recent federal legislation, U.S. colleges and
universities will now assume an active role in efforts to encourage voter registration. According to the
1998 Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, an institution of higher education must make a
"good faith effort to distribute a mail voter registration form . . . to each student enrolled in a degree
or certificate program and physically in attendance at the institution, and to make such forms widely
available to students at the institution."
MCCCD encourages you to be a registered voter and exercise your right to vote!
You can register online, download the National Mail Voter Registration Form or fill it out online and
print it or print the blank form and fill it out by hand.
