  • Binghamton University encourages active student participation in all local, state and national elections. Students have the right to register to vote here in Broome County if they are living in the county while attending school, or they may register at the address where they live while they are not at school.

    Students living on campus can register using their campus address and can vote at the on-campus polling place in the Events Center on Election Day. Students living off campus can register with their off-campus address and vote at the designated polling place near their residence.

    Students choosing to register using their home address will need to vote via absentee ballot if they cannot vote in person at their designated polling place.

    Students who were previously registered on campus but now live off campus are no longer eligible to vote on campus. They should update their registration using their current off-campus address or home address.

    All N.Y. voters can request an absentee ballot due to the pandemic using the “temporary illness” excuse and can submit their request electronically for the November election. If you plan to vote absentee, the United States Postal Service cannot guarantee timely delivery of ballots requested less than 15 days before an election.

    Remaining deadlines for the Nov. 3 general election:

    Oct. 27: Last day to postmark absentee request application or submit request via fax, email or BOE web portal (Note: USPS cannot guarantee timely delivery of ballots requested less than 15 days before an election)
    • N.Y. online absentee ballot request: https://rebrand.ly/ny-absentee

    Nov. 2: Last day to apply in person for absentee ballot

    Nov. 3 (Election Day): Last day to postmark absentee ballot (must be received by the local BOE no later than Nov. 10) and last day to deliver ballot in person to the local BOE (by someone other than the voter). (Note: USPS recommends mailing your ballot at least seven days before Election Day.)

    For more information, visit the Center for Civic Engagement website at http://binghamton.edu/cce/vote or email us at cce@binghamton.edu or visit us in UU-137. CCE staff are trained to assist with voter registration and absentee ballot applications. The CCE has voter registration forms available, and students may drop off completed forms in the office or in a secure drop box outside the office. If you are unsure if you are registered to vote, you can check your registration status at http://canivote.org

    If you have specific questions about registering to vote or how to vote, call 1-800-FOR-VOTE (TDD call 1-800-533-8683), the Broome County Board of Elections at 607-778-2172 or the Center for Civic Engagement at 607-777-4287.

  • Binghamton University Information Technology Service (ITS) requests that all VPN users begin to sign in to the VPN using their BU domain account by Dec. 1. This can be accomplished by selecting the "BU Domain Users" Realm in the "Please select a Realm" list on the Pulse Secure VPN Client. If you have saved your settings in Pulse Secure, you will not see the list of Realms. Find the steps to edit the saved settings at the link below.

    Note that your username and password for the BU Domain matches your current PODs (Binghamton University computer account) username and password. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to begin using the new BU Domain Users option immediately as on Dec. 15, the PODs, BGM and Decker domains will be removed from the VPN entirely.

    The BU Domain is an initiative by ITS to consolidate the many login domains (PODs, BGM, Decker) that exist for technology usage at the University. Transitioning the VPN to using this new authentication source is one of the first steps in allowing the University community to begin using the BU Domain.

  • Join us from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28, for this webinar with David Schultz '80, MA '86, hosted by the Harper College Alumni Association and the Institute for Justice and Well-Being.

    The United States is the only democracy in the world that does not select its president or prime minister by popular vote. Instead, the president is chosen by the Electoral College. This talk looks at why the constitutional framers created the Electoral College, how it works, and whether it should be retained, replaced or revamped.
