Deadlines for Registering to Vote
You must register at least ten days before Primary or General Elections and 11 days before any other election. You may register after the deadline, but your registration will not be effective until after that election. However, a registration form postmarked at least 15 days before an election will be accepted for that election even if it is received after the deadline to register to vote.
Registration is permanent. After you register, you do not have to register again unless you move to a new address.
