The voter registration age requirement varies by state, but most states allow individuals who will be 18 by the next election to register to vote. Some states have a minimum age requirement to register to vote (for example, you have to be 17 ½ years of age in Georgia to be able to register to vote but will have to be 18 at the time of voting). Check out your secretary of state webpage for the voter registration eligibility requirements in your state.
If already registered to vote you will update your name and provide confirmation of the name change, such as a driver’s license or marriage certificate to the state elections office. Acceptable documentation to confirm your name change will depend on the state in which you are registered.
Moved within the state only – If your address has changed but you remain in the state you are registered to vote in you will need to change/update your address with the State Elections office (Secretary of State webpage of the state in which you live).
Moved to a new state – When you register to vote it is with the state and you may only vote in a state in which you live. If you moved to a different state you will need to register to vote in your new state.
What if I changed my party affiliation? – In Georgia, residents registering to vote are not required to indicate their party affiliation status. However, some states do require this. If your state requires to you indicate your party affiliation when registering, you will need to update your registration information with the state to reflect your new party affiliation.
No. Your form will not be processed if you put a P.O. box as your permanent address. For districting purposes, you must put a physical address. There is a section of the form to put your mailing address, in addition to your physical address.
Yes. You have the right to register to vote at your school address. This includes a residence hall. A student living in a residence hall is entitled to the same rights as any other student. To imply otherwise is illegal. If you receive mail in a Post Office box you can sign an affidavit (or, in some cases, get a letter from University Housing) asserting you live at your residence hall address.
You can check your voter registration status directly with your state.
A governor serves a similar function as the president just at the state level. They head the executive branch of a state’s government, implement state laws, and appoint agency/department heads and state court judges.
The lieutenant governor is the second highest ranking officer after the governor and assists them in their duties. Their responsibilities vary by state, and over half serve as the Speaker of the Senate.
