Information For Students
You can only be registered and vote in one location. All students have a choice about where to register to vote: at school, or at another permanent address. If a parent/guardian’s address is considered “home”, students can use that address, or they may use their college address.
- TLU students may register to vote with their TLU school address, and vote within Guadalupe County. Students must plan to return after temporary absences, like summer break, but do not have to plan to reside at that address permanently. Students who choose to register in this way should use their TLU residence hall address to register, which can be retrieved from the Residence Life office or from the Center for Servant Leadership.
- If a student decides to register in Guadalupe County, and lives in a residence hall on-campus, they will use their hall address and the # for the residence address. Their mailing address would be 1000 West Court Street. # _____, Seguin, TX 78155.
- Students may choose to register or remain registered at a permanent address off-campus in Seguin, in other parts of Texas, or outside of the state.
- If registering in Guadalupe or Comal counties, students would register using their address within that county.
- If registering outside of Guadalupe or Comal counties with a parent/guardian in another part of Texas or another state, students may vote by absentee ballot by requesting a ballot-by-mail. Deadlines and procedures for ballot-by-mail and voter registration may vary for states outside of Texas, and so students should contact the elections officials within that county.
