Confirm Your Voter Registration Status

To confirm that you’re registered to vote in the upcoming election, check your voter registration status. You’ll also be able to verify your polling location. And you can find out what political party you’re registered with if you specified one.

How to Check Your Voter Registration Information

Visit Can I Vote and select “voter registration status.” Then, choose your state. You’ll be taken to a page on your state’s website where you can check to see if you’re registered.

Remember to check your registration information before your state’s deadline to register to vote. That could be up to 30 days before the election. This gives you time if you need to re-register or make changes.

Do You Need to Re-Register Or Change Your Registration to Vote?

You’ve moved permanently to another state. Register to vote in the new state.

You’ve moved within your state or changed your name. Update your voter registration with your new location or your new name. Make sure you also update your state driver’s license or state ID card before the election, if that’s the voter ID you’ll use.

Your name and address have not changed and you’re an active voter.

You move to a different state very close to the date of a presidential primary or general election. Check with your old state. You may be able to vote by mail through your old state for that election. After that, you’ll need to register with and begin voting in your new state.

Why You Should Check Your Registration Information

Each state has different ways to keep voter registration lists up-to-date. Most purge, or delete, the names of inactive voters. If you go to vote and find your registration has been purged, you may have to cast a provisional ballot.

Checking ahead of time to be sure you are still registered to vote and making any needed changes ensures:

Your name, address, and party affiliation are up-to-date

Your state didn’t purge your registration from its list of eligible voters. If it did, you have time to re-register to vote.

You’re able to vote

You’re voting at the correct polling place

Video: Guide for Checking Your Registration

If you have already registered to vote, you may want to check your registration to make sure it is up-to-date. This short video will explain why it is important to check and how easy it is to do.

  • Show the Video Transcript

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.

Start by finding your local election office at usa.gov/election-office. You may be able to check your registration

Online
By phone
By mail or
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 and
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.

Do you have a question?

Ask a real person any government-related question for free. They’ll get you the answer or let you know where to find it.

    How to register to vote online

    In 40 states, registration is just a click away. Here’s how to get started and why you might want to consider signing up to be a poll worker, too.

    Aristotle said “man is a political animal,” but he could not have imagined the ferocity of this election year. Going into 2020, we had an idea of how contentious this presidential race would be, but not that we would be navigating it during a pandemic. Participation is all the more urgent now and if you’re not already registered to vote, you may be able to do so online.

    The basic requirements to vote in a federal election in the United States are that you are a US citizen (by birth or naturalization) who is at least 18 years old on Election Day. But there are other rules that vary by state, such as residency dates, criminal conviction status, and controversial voter ID requirements.

    Election Day this year is Nov. 3 and deadlines for registering-whether online, by mail, or in person-can be found on Vote.org. With the way time passes so quickly lately, it’s best to get registered to vote as early as possible no matter your state’s deadline. This is pretty easy to take care of if you live in one of the 40 states where you can register to vote online. The National Conference of State Legislatures has the full list and links to applications for the states that offer it. Vote.gov has both links to state registration sites and compiles all registration deadlines.

    Should your state not have online voter registration, you can print out and mail in a form from the United States Election Assistance Commission. Click on your state and look for the Register to Vote option, and it should bring you to your state’s form.

    Citizens who do not currently reside in the United States, whether for military or other reasons, and need assistance voting can find it via the Federal Voting Assistance Program.

    If celebrity pitches are persuasive to you, there’s the option to Rock the Vote. There, you can register to vote and get answers to questions about whether or not a school mailbox can be used as a permanent address.
