Registering To Vote

In order to vote in any election–national, state or local–you first need to register at least 25 days before the election.

In order to register to vote you must be:1) a citizen of the United States, 2) a resident of the state in which you’re planning to register, and 3) at least 18 years old at the time of the election (or 30 days before for most states).

However, if you are in prison or on parole for the conviction of a felony, or if you are deemed mentally incompetent by a court of law, you are not eligible to vote.
