vote-november-8

Our state-by-state guide for making sure you register in time for the 2016 general elections.

 

 

One of the most infuriating aspects of voting in US elections has always been registering to vote. It’s a process that is an unnecessary hurdle for many voters who want to vote on November 8. Well fear not, we’re here to help!

 

Below are state-by-state voter registration deadlines for the 2016 general elections. The idea here is to give people an easy to understand deadline (by state) so people know when to register. While these dates don’t take into account absentee voting – you can check those dates here – if you were to register before the specified date, you will definitely be registered come Election Day!

 

But first…
