USA Change Your Voter Registration

If you move permanently to another state, register to vote in that new state. Submit your changes before your state’s deadline to register to vote. That could be up to 30 days before the election.

You can change your registration online, by mail, or by phone. Be ready to provide your state driver’s license number or state ID number and your Social Security number.

You’ll need to update or change your voter registration if you:
** Move within your state
** Change your name
** Want to change your political party affiliation

How To Change Voter Registration?

Make Changes Online

If your state has online voter registration, that may be the easiest way to make changes. If your state keeps track of political party preference, you will be able to change that too.

** Go to Vote.gov.
** Select your state and click “find out how to register.”
** Follow the link to your state’s election website to start your online registration or to find other ways to register.

Make Changes By Mail

** Download, fill out, and mail in the National Mail Voter Registration Form. All states except New Hampshire, Wyoming, and North Dakota accept it.
** If you can’t download this form and would like it or your state’s own registration form mailed to you, contact your state or local election office.
** If you’re an overseas and/or military voter, don’t use the mail-in form. Go to the Federal Voting Assistance Program to change your voter information and request an absentee ballot.

Make Changes By Phone

Check with your state or local election office. Some states will accept changes over the phone.

How To Change Your Political Party Affiliation?

Your political party affiliation is the party that you choose to associate with. Depending on your state, you may be asked your party affiliation when you register to vote.

You can change your party affiliation online, by mail, or over the phone using the methods for changing your voter registration information, above.

You don’t have to join a political party or reveal your party preference when you register to vote. Not every state accepts or lists a party affiliation on a voter registration card.

The party affiliation on your voter registration does not limit you to voting for just that party. You can always choose to vote for a candidate from any party in a general election, like a presidential, congressional, or mayoral election.

Your party affiliation is usually only important in primary elections. Many states have “closed” primaries. This means that you can only vote for your party’s candidates in its primary election. Learn about the different types of primary elections.
