Register to Vote through DMV
The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has several easy ways for eligible citizens who visit DMV for driver’s license, learner’s permit or non-driver identification card services to apply for voter registration or update your voter registration:
If you only need to register to vote at this time:
You can register to vote online
through the Office of the Secretary of State: Register to vote online here
You may also apply for voter registration or update your voter registration information through the mail
at any time using the voter registration form found here: Secretary of the State Election Forms
. You may complete and sign this form and submit it to your local registrar of voters.
If you are visiting DMV for a driver’s license, learner’s permit or non-driver identification card service (new, renewal or duplicate):
Each time you visit DMV for a driver’s license, learner’s permit or non-driver identification card service (new, renewal or duplicate) you will be offered the opportunity to apply for voter registration or update your voter registration information. You will be provided with a receipt and if you have chosen to apply for voter registration DMV will transmit your voter registration application to election officials. You will receive confirmation of your registration in approximately three (3) weeks from your local registrar of voters.
If you are changing your address with DMV:
DMV’s change of address form also gives eligible citizens who are changing an address with DMV the opportunity to apply to register to vote for the first time or change voter status (e.g. party affiliation). If you are already a registered voter, the change of address form serves to transmit your voter registration information to your new town (or to update your new address in the same town) unless you indicate on the form that the change of address is NOT for voter registration purposes (opt out).

Important! Keep your voter record up to date
You are not a voter until your application is approved by the Registrar of Voters. You should receive a confirmation within 3 weeks. If you do not, contact the Registrar in your town hall.
