Deadlines for absentee ballot applications are coming up in the next few days for a lot of states, so students who are at school in a state other than the one they're registered in, or who attend school far from their voting precinct, should ensure they'll have the chance to make their voice heard by voting long-distance. That's where our friends at Long Distance Voter come in: They've got all the information that absentee voters will need, including state-by-state deadlines for absentee ballot requests and absentee voting, registration verification for each state, and comprehensive guides to getting your absentee ballot and using it no matter where you live. If you know students who plan to vote absentee but may not have made all the arrangements yet, make sure they take a quick trip to LongDistanceVoter.org so they can be a part of the process wherever they vote. And if you work with campuses that have a lot of students from other states, distribute links to Long Distance Voter as widely as you can, through listserv messages, campus-wide texts and emails from campus IT departments, and even posters and tableslips with QR codes.
