General information

Every voter must be registered.

Anyone going to the polls must be registered to vote in their state or territory. Some states may require voters to register at least 30 days before the November election, while others may not allow for online registration. Be sure to check the policies of your state or territory on this site's home page.

You may need to check your registration status.

Some states may remove names from the voter rolls for various reasons. It's always best to check your registration status before you go to the polls.

Know where and when to vote.

Make sure to confirm your polling location and its operating hours before Election Day. Even if you've voted in your area before, polling places are sometimes moved, and their hours of operation may change with little notice.
