Nov 05, 2012All students who live on campus can vote in the Atrium of the Campus Center. Polls in Moorhead are open 7 a.m.-8 p.m.
What you need to vote
If you live on campus and are already registered to vote, all you need is your Concordia ID or your drivers license.
If you are not registered yet, you will need is a photo ID (like a drivers license or Concordia ID) or the last four digits of your Social Security number.
If you live off campus and are already registered to vote, look up your official polling place.
If you are not registered yet, you will need either an ID with your current address on it, a photo ID (like a drivers license from home or your Concordia ID) and a bill (heat, water, electric, phone, Internet, etc.) that has your current address on it, or a voter registered in the same precinct as you to confirm your address with a signed oath. See a complete list of valid proofs of residence.

To be eligible to register and vote in Minnesota you must:

Policies and procedures
Because the Atrium serves as an official polling place, and it is against the law to campaign within 150 feet of a polling place, no individual or group can promote their candidates or issues in the campus center on election day. Anyone who appears to be campaigning in the campus center or in the immediate perimeter of the building will be asked to move to another location (or discontinue the activity).
Campaign materials worn or displayed by individuals will be allowed, unless it is perceived that they are intentionally campaigning in the vicinity of the polls.
Other important information:
- All off campus guests must be invited, sponsored and accompanied by a campus department or recognized student organization or approved by a Student Affairs Dean/designee.
- Members of the college community cannot be harassed in any way.
- Specifically, activities in the residence halls are only permitted with the permission of the director of residence life/designee and door-knocking is only allowed by a candidate and/or his or her designated representatives.
