Voter Registration

The Library provides Voter Registration Services.

To register to vote, you must be:

  • A U.S. citizen
  • At least 18 years old by Election Day
  • A resident of your precinct at least 30 days prior to an election
  • If you became a citizen while living in the United States, or under your parent’s papers, you must provide the registrar the date and city of your naturalization.
  • In order to register, you will need 2 pieces of identification. One of the identification pieces must include your name and current address–neither needs to be a picture ID.

Note: Voter registration closes 27 days prior to an upcoming election.
