Registering to vote is a crucial part of participating in the democratic process. You can’t vote in elections without first registering. You can register through the Rock the Vote registration widget above, or you can register by mail. Download the National Mail Voter Registration form.
If you’re a college student or service member and are registered at home rather than where you currently live, you can find state-specific assistance on getting absentee ballots through LongDistanceVoter.org.
Once you’re registered, pay attention to election dates and to the voting location for your precinct so you’re in the right place at the right time to cast your vote. A good resource to keep on top of election dates and polling locations is Vote411.org.
