The deadline to update your address information via mail for the Federal General is October 9, 2018. Starting October 10, 2018 voters must appear in person at their local elections office to register or update their information.
When you move, you very likely update your address with the United States Postal Service. You would think that change of address would be transferred to other government agencies, but it doesn't. Unfortunately, voters don't realize their address is out-of-date with the elections office until there is an election.
Your address is important because it dictates which ballot you will receive, it saves counties money to have an updated address and you maintain an "active" status as a voter.
Updating your information is easy! Simply fill out a new voter registration form to update your votering information today.
Ensuring your information is up-to-date with your local elections office means you'll have great voting experiences. You'll be easily located in the polling place register, your vote-by-mail ballot will reach you in time, you'll receive time sensitive communications from the elections office, and so much more. Encourage your friends to make sure their information is up to date, too!
