Voting bring us together as Americans – it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, young or old; it is the one time when we are all equal.
In order to be heard and counted on Election Day, eligible citizens must be registered to vote. Use the voter registration tool at VOTE411 to register to vote or update your current voter registration (if you’ve moved) and find your personalized voting guide! You will see all the information you need to cast your ballot, including important deadlines to remember and information regarding in-person and absentee voting.
These elections are about our jobs, our health, our communities and our future. They’re about us and we all need to weigh in. Together, through our votes, we can take control of this election. Please register to vote – your state deadline is almost here!
To be eligible to vote, you must be a U.S. citizen. In most states, you must be 18 years old to vote, but some states do allow 17 year olds to vote. States also have their own residency requirements to vote. For additional information about state-specific requirements and voter eligibility, contact your state election office.
Registering to Vote
The U.S. Election Assistance Commission has resources for voters, including voter guides, registration information, voting accessibility, and information for military and overseas voters.
How to Register or Change Your Registration
In almost all states, you can register by mail to vote using the National Mail Voter Registration Form. North Dakota, Wyoming, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands do not accept the National Mail Voter Registration Form. New Hampshire accepts it only as a request for an absentee voter mail-in registration form. If you live in one of these states, please check with your state election office to find out how to register to vote.
You may also use the National Mail Voter Registration Form to update your registration if you changed your name, to change your address, or to register with a political party.
You may be able to apply to register to vote in person at the following public facilities:
- State or local voter registration and/or election offices
- The department of motor vehicles
- Public assistance agencies
- Armed services recruitment centers
- State-funded programs that serve people with disabilities
- Any public facility that a state has designated as a voter registration agency
In some states, you can also register online to vote. To learn if your state offers online voter registration, please contact your state election office.
State Registration Deadlines
Almost every state has a voter registration deadline. In order to be eligible to vote, you must submit the National Mail Voter Registration Form by your state’s own deadline.
