Same-Day Registration and Voting on Campus, Nov. 8
Fairfield University has been selected by the Town of Fairfield to be the Election Day same-day registration and voting site for the 2016 Presidential Election on Tuesday, November 8. Students, faculty, staff and community members who are not registered to vote in the Town of Fairfield may take advantage of same-day registration and voting on campus in the lower level of the Barone Campus Center from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. For students already registered to vote in Fairfield, transportation services will be provided from campus every hour on the hour from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., leaving from the traffic circle on campus.
All non-registered, on-campus students who are registering to vote in the Town of Fairfield on Election Day must meet the following requirements:

Those registering on Election Day must also bring proof of identity (such as a driver’s license or Stag Card) and proof of residence (such as a utility bill or other document with your current address). Students living on campus may obtain a proof of residency letter that fulfills this requirement from the Office of Student Engagement (096 BCC) prior to or on Election Day.
