Think You’re Too Young to Register?

Do you think you’re too young to register to vote? Check out our table below to confirm how old you need to be to register. Some states have laws that specifically allow citizens to preregister at a certain age while others allow registration as long as you’re 18 by the next election. Preregistration means you’ll be automatically registered to vote on your 18th birthday without taking any additional steps.  Some states even let you vote in their primaries at 17 if you’ll be 18 by the general election so you can participate in the whole process!

If your age fits into one of these categories register to vote here today! You’ll need an in-state ID number (driver’s license, permit, state issued ID) or your social security number to process the registration.

State laws are rapidly changing to support America’s youth. For example, in January 2020 New Yorkers will be able to preregister at 16, with many other states following the trend.  Check back from time to time and make sure you’ve signed up for our emails so we can let you know if the law changes in your state.
