If you arrive at the polling place and believe you have registered to vote, but you are not on the registration list, you have the right to cast a provisional ballot. If you cast a provisional ballot, election officials will review it after the election, and if they determine that you were an eligible registered voter according to state law, your ballot will be counted.
Poll workers may also ask that you vote a provisional ballot if you do not have proper voter identification. To find the proper voter identification for your state, go to the State Voting Requirements directory, input your state, and look under the "Identification Requirements" tab.
If there is a problem with your registration, you should update your information by completing a new voter registration form. Below is a step by step guide for how to file a new voter registration form.
Note: The form must be submitted by you. Our system does not send any documents in your name - only you can submit your own voting documents to your election office.
