Can I Register To Vote Online For The November 8th Presidential Election? | Chart Shows 50 States And How You Can Register To Vote

The Presidential Election is coming up fast, it is now only away on November 8th, 2016. However, in order to participate, you need to be registered to vote. With the advent of the internet, many states now allow you to register to vote online. In fact, 33 states allow you to register online, while 16 states require you to register by mail. Just one state requires you to register in person.

However, although many states allow you to register online, due to voter registration deadlines in various states, you may or may not be allowed to register online right now. Also, many states have deadlines that say when you have to mail in your voter registration, although some states have laws allowing you to register in person much closer to the election.

This election could be the most important election in American history, and will determine the path of America. Many voters are aware that the course of this election could in fact determine whether or not America will even be able to survive as a country anymore. There has never been an election so important for you to get out and vote this November 8th!!

Here is a chart showing to 50 states and showing which states you are allowed to register online, mail-in and in-person deadlines if any, whether you can do same-day voter registration (walk-in on election day and register to vote), and whether, as of the writing of this post, you are still able to register to vote.

Also included in the chart are the online registration links.
