Voters in the following states are required to register by end of day today to be eligible to vote in the upcoming federal and state elections.

  • Alaska
  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Washington DC
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Hawaii

Other deadlines coming up soon: Illinois and New Mexico are tomorrow, Oct. 7. Montana is Oct. 6, but you can do same-day registration at the elections office. Utah is also Oct. 6, but you can register in person until the 20th.

Registering to vote is as easy as filling out a postcard and getting it postmarked by the end of the day. If you are registered pass this is information around. If your kids are voting age, remind them how important voting is, make it a family affair - plan to take the family to the voting booths on November 4th.
