All UMass Dartmouth on-campus residents may be required to show verification of residency when they go to the polls. UMass Dartmouth students should also bring their CAMPUS ID with a residency verification letter.

The Housing Office, working with the Dartmouth Town Clerk's Office, has identified on-campus student voters and is distributing residential verification letters to them. The letters can also be obtained directly by the student at the Housing Office in Oak Glen Hall on Monday or Tuesday between 8am-5pm (student CAMPUS ID needed to obtain the letter and to vote on Tuesday).

If you have questions, call or visit the Housing Office, located in Oak Glen Hall, during regular business hours.

A shuttle to both polling places will be running all day with stops at the Woodland Commons and Campus Center.

Arnie, our favorite Corsair, is planning to join UMass Dartmouth students on the campus shuttle around noon.
