Can I Vote If I'm Not Currently In My Home State?


This is why absentee voting is so important! You don't need to re-register to vote every time you move, especially if it's a temporary move for school. If you are in another state or another country, you can still cast your vote by absentee ballot. Absentee voting allows your voice to be heard even when you are away from home and your choices will still count towards your home state's final tally. 

Do I Need My ID To Vote?

States requiring Photo ID Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin 
States requiring Non-Photo ID Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Utah, Washington, West Virginia

If you're voting by absentee ballot and your state requires your ID to vote, make sure to send a copy with your printed absentee ballot!
