The first step to becoming an Engaged Voter is Registering to Vote. Our organization emphasizes ballot education but still aims to register voters when we can. Below is information to learn about registering to vote!
Register to Vote
Each state has different deadlines for registration (some allow same day registration) as well as different requirements on how to register (online vs. mail in). We have found the easiest national site is www.vote.org. Visit this site to register to vote if you haven't done so yet.
Typically, once you register to vote and remain an active voter, your registration won't expire. However, if you move states or even counties, you should re-register there.
VOTER PURGING is where each state purges, or deletes, inactive voters from their lists. If your name is purged from a list, you will be turned around at the polls. You can check your registration here:https://www.vote.org/am-i-registered-to-vote/

Register Others to Vote
Did you know you can become certified to register other people in your county or state to vote? Search your county's election and/or voter registration website to determine if this exists and whether or not you are eligible.
