On this page, find out how to update your voter registration information online or by mail to reflect a change of address, party affiliation, or name, or how to cancel your registration. For guidance on topics such as what to do if you move close to an election, see the section on updating your voter registration at FAQ: Voter Registration.

Changes to your registration are due by the voter registration deadline, 25 days before Election Day. If you miss the voter registration deadline, you may be eligible to make changes to your voter registration (anything other than party affiliation) when you vote in person during the early voting period.
