Future Voters

How do I sign up to be a future voter?


If you’re a future voter, you are automatically registered to vote when you turn 18, so you’ll be able to vote in the election and sign petitions after your 18th birthday!

If you turn 18 before the next election and have registered as a future voter, you will receive a mailed ballot approximately two weeks before an election day if your address has not changed. 

Future voter sign-up information is protected while underage. Once you turn 18, you become registered and voter registration information is public. Visit Elections FAQ for more information.
