First time voters: 

Are you ready to vote for the first time?

  1. If you’re a U.S. citizen

  2. Meet your state’s requirements

  3. Will be 18 by Election Day,

You can vote!

But first, you need to register before your state’s deadline. Check with your local election office. You can register there or you may be able to register online, at the Department of Motor Vehicles, or using the National Mail Voter Registration Form.

Your election office may send you a voter registration card listing your polling place. On Election Day, that’s where you’ll go. When you get there, you may need to show an ID to vote. Then, fill out your ballot. If you don’t know how, ask a poll worker. If you know you won’t be able to get there on Election Day, you may qualify to vote by mail.

Remember, voting rules are different in every state.

Check your Voting Registration: 

(Even if you’ve voted before)

Is your voter registration up-to-date? Even if you voted before, from time to time, states and local election offices purge their voter registration lists. They delete people who have moved or who haven’t voted in a long time. And sometimes there’s just an error.

That’s why it’s a good idea to check your registration now to make sure you can vote on Election Day.  

Click here to find your local election office. You may be able to check your registration:

  • Online

  • By phone

  • By mail

  • In-person

When you’re reviewing your voter registration, here’s what to look for:  

  • Your name is correct and still on the voter list  

  • Your address and party affiliation are up-to-date 

  • You’re going to the correct polling place

If you can’t find your name on the voter list or your information is wrong, contact your election office right away to correct the error.

Did you recently move or change your name? Depending on where you live, you’ll need to update your registration or re-register. Ask your election office. Sometimes just moving a few blocks away can actually change your polling place.

And check your registration if you have not voted in the past couple of elections or you didn’t mail back a postcard from your election office. They might consider you inactive and purge your name from the voter registration list.

Don’t wait until Election Day to discover you can’t vote. Check your registration now. And learn more about voting at USA.gov/voting.
