FAQs About Voter Registration

Does my vote actually matter?

Yes, it definitely does! In a 2014 election in Louisiana, a local election was decided by just one percent of voters. Who pushed the winner over the top? Young people who supported that candidate more than any other group. 

But you don’t have to be a young person to make a difference. Together, our votes have the collective power to decide the future of the country we want to see.

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?

You can find a handy state-by-state guide to voter registration deadlines for the 2020 election here.

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 recently moved to a new city to pursue a career, 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 elections happening in each state even before the 2020 presidential election on November 3, 2020. Luckily, our friends at Rock The Vote can send you reminders about when elections are coming up in your state or city.
