Voter FAQ

  • What’s the first thing I should do before I vote?

    Check your voter registration status to make sure your name is still on the list at the right address. Then check to see where you’re voting and whether your state requires you to show an ID before you vote. You can find that out on your state’s page above.

  • I’m definitely registered to vote but your site says I’m not. What’s the deal?

    BallotReady uses a national database so it’s possible that the national file hasn’t updated yet with your registration. It’s also possible that your address or name might not exactly match their records. Your state will have the most up-to-date info, so double check directly at your state's Secretary of State website (or equivalent election administrators).

  • I forgot to register to vote! Can I register now?

    Registration deadlines for primaries and the general election vary from state to state, so it may not be too late for you! Find your state in the dropdown menu above to learn more about your registration deadlines.

  • I’m registered, but haven’t voted in the last few elections. Should I be worried?

    First, double-check to make sure you’re still a registered voter. The definition of “inactive voter” varies by state, and a state can purge your name off the rolls, so make sure to check here before you head to the polls.
