Voter Registration

Getting Out The Vote

by Jessica Johnson

If you haven’t heard, 2018 is an election year. While you won’t be voting for president, these midterms elections are extremely important to your state and local governments. We want you to be vote-ready this election year. That starts with getting registered in time to participate.

If you’ve moved in the past year or two, you will need to update your voter registration information. There’s still time to get registered before the general election on November 6th. Below, you’ll find a list of voter registration deadlines and where you can go to register. Be sure to contact your local election office for questions about the process or identification requirements.
