To register to vote, you will need to fill out a Voter Registration Form and follow the mailing instructions for your specific state. You may also find voter registration forms at your local library or US Post Office.


2. Why and when do I register to vote?

Before you can vote, you have to register to vote (except in North Dakota). Each state has a different deadline for voter registration, but in most states, you need to register at least 30 days before Election Day, November 8, 2016. Contact your state election office to find out more about registration deadlines.

To be eligible for voter registration, you must:

    • Be a United States citizen
    • Be 18 years old by the date of the election, and
    • Meet your state's eligibility requirements for voter registration


4. Do I need to re-register?

You will need to re-register to vote if your address, name, and/or party affiliation has changed since your last registration.


5. Where do I vote?

The polling place location will be printed on a Sample Ballot you may receive from the local elections official, or you can click here to contact your state election office about polling place locations. Some states may also have polling place location resources on their Secretary of States' websites.
