The Voter Registration Deadline For Every State: Find Out What You Need To Do To Vote On Nov. 6

We’re only one month away from the midterm elections, and it’s more important than ever to make sure you are registered to vote in your state! Find out here when your deadline is to register!

The midterm elections are coming up on Nov. 6th and not only is it important to practice your civic duty and vote, but it’s also vital to have a voice in your home state. “In the last midterm election, only 40% of voters came to the polls. 40% of eligible voters showed up to vote. That means that your vote, if you do show up, is even more important because you’re having your voice heard, and you’re making a decision for these lazy people who won’t show up to the polls,” Broadway star and founder of Belt The Vote Rory O’Malley told HollywoodLife.com. “There’s always something on the ballot, especially locally, and everyone has different things in the states and depending on where you live. But we are electing a new House of Representatives. We are electing a lot of United States new senators. So, those are the lawmakers who will be deciding what goes on, all over the country for the next two years.”

Every state has different deadlines for when you have to be registered by to vote on Nov. 6th in the midterm elections. Plus, if you’re voting in your state, but live out-of-state, there are important dates to be aware of for when you need your absentee ballot in! We’ve compiled a list of the deadlines for each state, and provide the forms to visit to make your vote count, state-by-state! Share this with your friends so they know, too!
