If I’ve moved from another state, is this considered a “Change Of Address” or a “New Registration”, or on some states’ forms a “new voter”?


ALL THREE! You should fill out the sections that ask for your previous registered voting address with as much detail as you can remember. If you register to vote in a new state, you will be considered a first time voter and will be required to provide ID at the polls – this might be a photo ID or simply a document verifying your new address (such as a utility bill, bank statement or paystub). For a full list of your state’s requirements, check our our Voter ID guide.
