Election 2012: Voter registration still available in 15 states
By Keith Goble, Land Line state legislative editor

Although most states have seen their deadlines to register come and go, potential voters in some states still have time to ensure their opportunity to cast a ballot on Nov. 6.

Seven states have registration deadlines that haven’t expired. Residents in California, South Dakota and Utah have until the end of the day Monday, Oct. 22, to register. Nebraska and Alabama residents must register by Friday, Oct. 26, while Connecticut residents must register by Oct. 30 and Vermont residents have until Oct. 31.

Another eight states offer same-day registration – Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Wisconsin and Wyoming – which means you can register and vote at the same time, but only if you have a photo ID with your address on it.

Any time you move – even across the street – you must reregister. The exception is North Dakota, where no registration is required. It is worth noting that P.O. boxes are not acceptable to establish residency.

If you registered in the past, but haven’t voted for a while, contact your local election office before the deadline to make sure your registration is still active.
