Voting tips

  • Find your municipal clerk.
  • As states make emergency election changes due to COVID-19, we encourage you to return to this page to get more updated information.
  • To encourage voting by mail during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states are proactively mailing vote-by-mail ballot applications or actual ballots to all registered or active voters. We recommend that all voters request a vote-by-mail ballot to help ensure that one is sent to their current address.
  • Most states have deadlines to apply to vote by mail. We recommend you make the request as soon as possible, and well before the deadline (at least two weeks before) to ensure enough time to receive, vote, and submit a complete ballot.
  • Instead of licking ballot envelopes, please use a wet sponge or cloth to seal them.
