5 Weeks Until Election Day: ARE YOU REGISTERED?
October 2, 2018
With the midterm election in just 5 weeks, it is critical that you make sure you are registered to vote. If you have recently moved, you will need to re-register in your new district/precinct. If you have not voted in a while, you should check to make sure you are still on the voter rolls to avoid any problems on Election Day. Getting registered, changing your registration, or checking your registration status is easy and only takes a few minutes.
