Election Day: Still time to register to vote in some states

| 11/1/2011

Voters around the country will fill out ballots next week for elected offices and various ballot issues.

Although most states have seen their deadlines to register to vote come and go, potential voters in fewer than 10 states still have time to ensure their opportunity to cast a ballot on Nov. 8.

Nine states offer same-day registration – Delaware, 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. P.O. boxes are not acceptable to establish residency.

As the “off-year” elections quickly approach it is worth mentioning that the presidential election season will start up in only a couple of months. Iowa, South Carolina and Florida are expected to kick off the presidential primary season in January.
