FAQs About Voter Registration

Does my vote actually matter?

Yes, it does! The 2020 election saw the highest voter turnout in over a century. Together, our votes have the collective power to decide the future of our country. It's also an opportunity to make your voice heard on the issues that matter the most to you starting at the local and state level, which is where the real change begins.

Am I registered to vote?

Use our tools to find out if you’re registered, change your address, and more. Oh! And if you re-register, there’s no penalty. Better safe than sorry, right?

What if I’m registered to vote, but someone I know isn’t?

You can share this page or have them text VOTE to 38383. Even if the person has different political beliefs than you, it’s important to emphasize to them the importance of exercising their freedoms.

If you’re currently under the age of 18 and not sure if you qualify to vote, you can check your state’s rules. And if you can’t vote this year, share this voter registration link with friends, family members, and colleagues who can.

How do I vote if I live in a different state than where I’m from?

You can register to vote wherever you have established a permanent residence. So, for example, if you moved to a new city during the COVID-19 pandemic, all you have to do is make sure you're registered to vote in that state.

When are my elections?

There are hundreds of local and state elections happening across the country in 2021. Luckily, our friends at Rock the Vote can send you reminders about when elections are coming up in your state or city.
