One Word: Engagement

The University of the Incarnate Word aims to educate men and women who will become concerned and enlightened citizens within the global community during and beyond their academic career. This can be accomplished via leadership opportunities, service learning experiences and engagement in one’s global community to support and address the needs of those that are poor, sick, voiceless and in need.


Gathered here you will find various resources to assist campus community members in learning more about the issues, understand the voting process, and provide links to register to vote or request an absentee ballot.

If you are not sure if you are registered to vote in the state of Texas, check your voter registration status here.

If you have not registered to vote or need to do so, we have gathered various resources below to assist you including utilizing the TURBOVOTE platform system. TurboVote ensures students always know when elections are happening and have the information they need to vote with confidence.
