I have a student away at college? Can they vote by mail?

Yes. The postcard application will come to their Fitchburg address. You can send the postcard to your student for them to sign. Or you as a parent or guardian can complete a Vote by Mail application and fill out the section for assisting a voter. Sign your name on the signature line. 

You can choose to have the ballot mailed to the student at home and you can send it to the student by a faster method yourself. It’s important to plan enough time for the ballot to be returned on or before Election Day.
