Did you move? If you have moved, you will need to re register to vote and, in some states, indicate a "change of address". If you have moved towns or states, you will be considered a new voter in that voting district.

Did you change your name? If you recently changed your name due to marriage, divorce or some other reason,  you will need to update your voter file by re registering and, in some states, indicate a "name change".

Did you changed your name to match your gender ID marker?

If you have changed your name and/or your gender ID marker, you will need to update your current voter registration to reflect those changes.  You cannot be turned away from voting if your gender ID marker does not match your gender presentation.  To learn more about protections for transgender voters, check out the Transform the Vote website and download their #Votingwhiletrans guide.

Not all states will have a check off indicating a name or address change; however, your voter file will need to match your ID or mail when you go to the polls to vote.

Aren't Registered on Election Day?

Same Day Voter Registration

You may also be able to register to vote on Election Day.  In some states, towns have a designated location for same day voter registration (different from your polling place). To learn more about same day voter registration nationwide, check out the National Conference of State Legislators website. In some cases, you may fill out a provisional ballot which will be counted once your information is confirmed.
