Voter Registration Deadlines! Register to Vote TODAY!
Congratulations Mely! You took the US citizenship test and passed! And the very next day participated in the Naturalization Oath Ceremony. The only thing left is for you to register to vote. With 2016 elections scheduled for November 8th you really need to register to vote TODAY! Since you live in California, you still have a another week or so before the deadline passes but for those of you who live elsewhere in the country, time is ticking. Really! The fact is, that in some states like Alaska and Rhode Island you have already missed the voter registration deadlines and in many states today is the last day to register to vote!.
To make it easy for everybody below please find a list of every state, their voter registration deadlines and a link to register. This election is too important to sit out. No matter who your candidate is or even if you dislike both presidential candidates, you need to vote for all the other candidates and propositions and proposals on your election ballot.
If you have not already, please please register to vote. Do not forget to request an absentee ballot if you prefer to vote in the privacy of your own home and not deal with the hassle of waiting in line! Personally, we love everything about voting in person but our polling site is small and never crowded so they not only make it easy for us to vote but also create a fun voting experience.
2016 Voter Registration Deadlines!
Please note – these are general deadlines and do not reflect every postmark, mailing and online deadline and restriction. Dates are to the best of our knowledge but we do not guarantee accuracy. Be sure to verify all deadlines yourself! Dates that show November 8th voter registration deadlines generally allow election day registration & voting but every state and locale has different restrictions.
