When you are moving to a new location, it is important to update your voter registration address as soon as you can if you want to be able to vote. Although some may think that everything with your voter registration is going to automatically update when you move to a new location, this is not true.
Changing your address on your voter registration is mandatory. If you are still remaining in the same county after your move, it is still necessary to change your voter registration. Additionally, if you decide to move to a new county or a different state, then you will have to re-register in order to be able to vote for that new city and state. If you are unsure about the process of updating your voter registration information, visit the Supervisor of Elections website of your state for more information.
The EAC is responsible for providing with you all of the information that is needed and all of the forms necessary to make sure that you are prepared to place a vote. The registration deadline for each state is different, so it is important to verify the deadline for your specific location so that your address change can be made to your voter registration card on time. There are other places that you can obtain a voter registration change of address from besides through the EAC. This includes:
While all of these options are valid ways to update your address information, take note that the best way to update this information is to fill out the National Mail Voter Registration Form provided by the EAC and send it to the election office in your area.
