FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO BE AN INFORMED VOTER

STEP 1: Register to vote

 

Voter registration is the requirement for citizens to register specifically for the purpose of being allowed to vote in elections. In all states, except North Dakota, registering to vote is required in order to cast a ballot. Register now so that you can confirm your registration was processed before your state’s deadline.

STEP 2: Confirm your registration

 

Each state has different ways to keep voter registration lists up-to-date, including purging the names of inactive voters. It is a good idea to confirm your registration ahead of time. This will ensure that you can cast your ballot. Two to three weeks after you submit your registration, confirm it was processed.  You won’t be able to register after your state’s deadline.

STEP 3: Review your ballot

 

Casting your ballot isn’t difficult, but it does require you to be prepared. Did you know that your ballot will contain not only candidates for federal positions but the state, county, and municipal positions as well?  Your ballot will also contain measures, such as a new statute or a special tax, that you will get to express your opinion on. Start reviewing your ballot in October so you can make informed voting decisions.

STEP 4: Find your polling location

 

Polling locations are assigned by the address you used when you registered to vote. It is important that you go to your assigned location since your name will not be on the roster at any other location. Polling locations can change from year to year so it is always a good idea to double check. In early November, confirm your polling location so you know where to go to vote in person.
