Voter Registration Frequently Asked Questions

What if I've moved or changed my name since I registered?

If you have moved within 30 days of the election, you will need to vote at your old polling place. If you moved or changed your name more than 30 days before election day, you will need to complete a new registration form.


I'm a college student from another state. Can I register to vote here? 
Yes. College students may use their dorm address or school address to register to vote.


Can I use a PO Box as my address when I register to vote? 
No. You must provide a physical address as it is used to determine your polling place.

I'm currently on probation/ I have a criminal record. Can I register to vote? 


Can I register to vote if I'm homeless? 
Yes. A mailing address where mail can be received should be provided and will determine your polling place. A shelter or drop-in center's address is permissible.
