A person is eligible to register to vote if they meet the following requirements:

  1. They are a U.S. citizen
  2. They have resided in the county where they live for 30 days prior to the election
  3. They must be 18 years old on the date of the election. However, some residents who are 17 years old may be eligible to vote in the General Primary.

When Can I Register to Vote?

Voter registration can be done at any point throughout the year, but a person generally must register at least 28 days before an election if they wish to vote in that election. However, "grace period" registration and voting may be available within 27 days before an election, and online voter registration is available until 15 days prior to an election.
