I TURNED IN A VOTER REGISTRATION APPLICATION AM I REGISTERED TO VOTE?
Just because you turned in a voter registration application does not necessarily mean you are registered to vote. Once your application has been processed by your local Board of Registrars, you should receive an acknowledgement from the Registrars indicating the status of your application. This acknowledgement will usually be a voter identification card confirming that you are registered to vote. However, if your application was incomplete, you may receive a letter requesting additional information to complete your application.

I TURN 18 AFTER THE VOTER REGISTRATION DEADLINE BUT BEFORE ELECTION. CAN I VOTE IN THAT ELECTION?
Yes. As long as you turn 18 on or before election day, even if your birthday is after the voter registration deadline, you can apply for voter registration and participate in that election (as long as you meet other voter qualifications). Please note that you must turn your voter registration application in before the 14-day close for voter registration.
I HAVE MOVED FROM ONE PART OF THE COUNTY TO ANOTHER AND WANT TO VOTE. WHAT SHOULD I DO
You must contact us and submit an update to your voter registration record. Remember, where you live determines who represents you. To be sure you are voting on candidates in the correct district, it is important that you vote in the correct precinct.
I HAVE MOVED FROM ONE COUNTY TO ANOTHER AND WANT TO VOTE. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
When you move across county lines, you must register to vote in your new county of residence. Voter registration does not automatically follow you from one county to another.
IT IS THE DAY BEFORE THE ELECTION. I FORGOT TO REGISTER TO VOTE. IS IT TOO LATE?
Yes, it is too late to register to vote for that election. To participate in an election, you must submit your application before registration closes for that election. Registration is closed during the fourteen days prior to an election and on election day.
