Voting rightsVoting in the primaries this presidential election has been frustrating and confusing for many Americans this year. Amidst the accusations of voter fraud and suppression, many likely voters are now left wondering if they’ll be turned away at the polls.

If you’re moving, whether it be down the street or another state, it’s essential to re-register to vote if you plan on voting this November.

Voter Registration Rules Vary by State

In the state of Arizona, the deadline to register to vote for the general election is October 10. However, this date isn’t the same for every state.

Each state has a different set of rules when it comes to registering to vote and updating your registration. So if you’re moving out of state, you may want to look into the registration rules for the state you’re moving to.

Verify Your Polling Place

If you’re moving, even if it’s just a few blocks away, your polling place may not be the same. If you go to the wrong polling place on election day, you will most likely be told that you’re not assigned to that location and cannot vote there.

If you’re moving within the same county, you only need to update your address. If you’re moving to another county or state, you’ll need to re-register with your new county or state.

Check with the U.S. Election Assistance Commission

Voting after moving can be as simple as re-registering through an online form, thanks to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, or EAC.

The EAC is an invaluable source of voter registration information. It lays out all of the voting requirements for each state and provides links and other contact information for those looking to register to vote.
