Today is National Voter Registration Day and 2017 hast truly taught us all the importance exercising our right to vote. If you are not registered or have changed your address and need to re-register, we’ve got you covered with a helpful list of ways to get it done.
Registering To Vote Online
As of September 2017, 35 states and the District of Columbia offer online voter registration. Visit the National Voter Registration Day website to complete the voter registration form. If you are unsure if your state allows online registration, visit the National Conference of State Legislatures website to check.
Registering To Vote By Mail
Registering by mail is still practical and often used by many voters. The national mail voter registration form can be found here.
Registering To Vote In Person
If you'd like to register to vote in person, visit your local election office’s website for instructions and locations. This map will tell you if you can vote at your local DMV or other public agency.
Registering To Vote At A Local Event
This year, hundreds of voter registration events are taking place around the country. This is a fun and practical way to register with others. Check out this National Voter Registration Day directory to see an event in your area. All you need to do is type in your zip code.
