Election dates are pulled from a third party source that is updated regularly. To verify election infomation, consult your state’s election department or the U.S. Vote Foundation.
Before Election Day in November, it’s a good idea to ensure that your voter registration is up to date with your current address. With the impact of COVID-19, it is possible that your registration may need to be updated to reflect the address where you are currently residing and not where you originally registered to vote. In many states, you can’t show up to the wrong polling place and expect to cast a ballot just because you’re registered — you must show up to the polling place assigned to you based on your address.Check your voter registration here
Don’t panic! You may still have time to get your registration in. Deadlines vary by state and can be anywhere from requiring paperwork one month before Elections to allowing voter registration on Election Day.Read about the rules in your state
You may need to reregister so you should check your voter registration to make sure you are still registered and you are registered at your current address. If you do not appear as registered, go ahead and reregister!Check Your Registration
More than half the states require voters to show some kind of identification at the polls in order to cast their ballot. In other states, methods like signatures ensure that voters are who they say they are.
Each state has a slightly different rule for when and how you need to show ID in order to vote. Some states can require an ID, but don’t specify if it needs to have a photo on it.
Be sure to get familiar with the rules for your state well in advance so you have time to get the right ID documents you’ll need on Election Day.
