Voter Registration, Absentee Ballot, Registration Status, and Reminder Tools
We have a new suite of online tools to help you vote in the age of COVID-19. Powered by Vote.org, they’ll let you check your registration, register to vote or change your registration, find your in-person polling place or ballot drop box, and receive key election reminders. If you’re quarantined or under a stay-at-home order, states will still let you vote, but click herefor state-specific info.
If you’re a student and attend college away from home, you have the choice to register at either address, but not both. Your choice will not affect your federal financial aid or your dependency status on your parents’ taxes or for your FAFSA form. You can vote at your school address even if you’re paying out of state tuition.
Mail-in balloting, sometimes called absentee balloting, has played a critical role in the age of COVID. 90 million voters requested mail ballots as of Oct 27. But given the postal delays, it’s now too risky to order a new mail ballot and assume it will reach you in time, and even mailing it is risky.
If you have a ballot that you haven’t yet returned, please mail it immediately, or far safer, return it to an official election drop box, county clerk’s office, or early voting site. Most states will still let you vote in person if you bring your unmailed ballot or sign an affidavit that you never received it. You can check additional state rules like ID rules below, and find info on drop box and early voting options here.
