rules in your state

Each state sets their own policies around voting. Know your state’s dates and requirements before heading to the polls. Updated in May 2022.


Although the entire country votes on the same day, each state sets its own rules around voter registration cutoffs, ID requirements, and early voting options. Select your state to learn more about what you can expect.

Election dates are pulled from a third party source that is updated regularly. To verify election information, consult your state’s election department or the U.S. Vote Foundation.
