You do not have to be affiliated with a party to vote. However, you must register with a party if you want to vote on their ballot in a primary election. If you do not pick a party, you will be registered as “unaffiliated.” If you do not wish to choose a party, do not select “Independent” as this refers to a certain party, not an unaffiliated registration.
If you have moved to a new address, you must update your voter information online.
Can I pre-register?
You can pre-register if you are 17 years old and will be 18 by Election Day.
