If you're good to go, then great. If you've moved since the last election or if the system can't find you for any reason, head over to to register. You'll type in your email address and zip code, then you'll need to enter your name, address, date of birth, and confirm you are a U.S. citizen.


The site will then tell you if you're eligible to complete your registration with the state you live in, as well as provide a link that'll take you directly to your state's voter registration application. Once you fill out the application, you'll receive a confirmation email. It takes 5 minutes or less to do it. You got this.
