New U.S. Citizens
Congratulations on becoming a United States citizen! You can register to vote at your naturalization ceremony or at a later time. View ways to register to vote.
16 or 17-year-olds
Although you cannot vote until you are 18, you can pre-register to vote now. On your 18th birthday, we will activate your voter record and send you a confirmation letter. View ways to register to vote.
If you attend college in one county and live in another, you can register to vote in either. Remember, you can only vote in one place! After you leave college, you can only register where you live. View ways to register to vote.
The voter registration deadline is 15 days before Election Day. But this deadline is for online and mail applications. If you miss the deadline and want to vote in the next election, you can still do so in person at the City Hall Voting Center or a polling place.
