I moved, how do I register to vote?

Whenever you move, you will have to register to vote with your new address. 

Forty of the fifty states and Washington D.C. have online voter registration systems. Arkansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, South Dakota, and Wyoming do not currently allow online voter registration. Oklahoma and Texas will only allow you to update your voter information online if you have relocated within the state. North Dakota is the only state that does not require voter registration.

In order to use a state's online registration system, you usually need to have identification issued by that state. Exceptions include Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, and Washington D.C. 

So, if you do not have a state issued identification card, you will most likely have to complete your voter registration in person or by mail. You can reach out to your local election official if you are unable to print the application form. First time voters without state identification will have to submit suitable proof of address with their registration form or when they submit a ballot.

Once you are registered with your new address, you may want to proactively inform your former election official that you have moved to have them cancel your old registration.
