You can vote in U.S. elections if you:
-Are a U.S. citizen
-Meet your state’s residency requirements
–You can be homeless and still meet these requirements.
-Are 18 years old on or before Election Day
-In almost every state, you can register to vote before you turn 18 if you will be 18 by Election Day. See a table of voter registration age requirements by state.
-Are registered to vote by your state’s voter registration deadline. North Dakota does not require voter registration.
Coronavirus and Voting by Mail-In Absentee Ballot
States are making it easier for citizens to vote absentee by mail this year due to the coronavirus. Every state’s election rules are different. And each state has its own rules for mail-in absentee voting. Many are still in the process of deciding how they will handle voting during the pandemic. Visit your state election office website to find out if you can vote by mail. Here is a great site that can help you get an absentee ballot.
