WHERE to vote?  
US citizens can vote in the US city where they live (you must register to vote in the city where you live)  
OR you can submit an absentee ballot (if you live in another state)  
WHEN to vote?  
The 2022 US Midterm Elections take place on November 8th! If you plan to vote by mail, please check the state you are registered for absentee ballot deadlines to make sure your vote is counted. If you plan to vote in-person, you can go on the day of November 8th to a polling station near you.

Should I register in Cambridge? 
All students who are eligible to vote, and living in Cambridge, can vote in Cambridge. If you have a legal residence in another city/state, you can choose to register in that city/state or Cambridge.  

Don’t live in Massachusetts? You can still vote!

We are excited to welcome (back) new (and returning) students! In September students in the PhD and Undergraduate programs began their Sloan journeys.  

The staff in the Student Life Office looks forward to working with you, whether you participate in student clubs and organizations at Sloan, run for elected positions in Sloan Senate, contact our office for resources, or just stop by to say hello at one of our Meet the Suite events. The Student Life Office at MIT Sloan is here to help you navigate your Sloan experience. We advise and coach student clubs, support initiatives to promote individual well-being, produce School-wide events and programs that build community, promote diversity and inclusion, and enhance the principled and value-centered culture that defines MIT Sloan. We provide students with opportunities to organize and run clubs and events, participate in student government, and plan conferences and treks. We host a variety of programs and events to bring the student community together across all degree programs (#OneSloan).

Welcome to Sloan!
