Voter Registration Deadlines

Welcome to our deadlines page!

We try to keep this page as up to date as possible but you should be sure to always double check your state’s Secretary of State website for the most up to date information.

PLEASE NOTE: While some vote by mail return deadlines are close to or on Election Day, we recommend that you don’t wait. Most states allow you to return your ballot in-person at a designated drop-off location. Depending on where you live that could be a secure dropbox, a local elections office, or polling place.
