Register to vote:

Facts you need to know before registering to vote

  • You must be a United States citizen who will be 18 or older on Election Day in order to register to vote.
  • Each state has its own guidelines about who can register, how to register and what information you need to provide. Additionally, each state sets its own registration deadline for voters who wish to participate in the next election.
  • You can register by downloading a copy of the National Mail Voter Registration Form online. You can also visit the office of the local election official in your city or county.
  • According to the US Election Assistance Commission, you can also register to vote “when applying for a driver’s license or identity card at State DMV or driver’s licensing offices, State offices providing public assistance, State offices providing State-funded programs for the disabled, and at armed forces recruitment offices.”

Register to vote from the convenience of your home. Go to CAIR’s Rock the Vote-sponsored online voter registration tool. Obtain a copy of the National Mail Voter Registration Form here.
