It’s easy. First, make sure you’re eligible to vote, meaning:
- You are a United States Citizen
- You are at least 17 years old (though you cannot actually vote until you turn 18)
- You have been a resident of your county for at least 30 days before the election
- You are not currently serving a sentence, probation, or parole for a felony conviction
If you meet these basic requirements, then complete and print out a Voter Registration Application and/or Party Affiliation Form for your county from the state website here and mail the completed form to the County Commissioner of Registration or the Superintendent of Elections in your county.
Registering doesn’t cost anything, and it’s your ticket to participate. Don’t pass it up!
