How to Register and Vote

It’s important to make a plan for registering to vote and casting your ballot, and to figure it out early, especially given the challenges of the pandemic. It's not difficult — just follow these steps:
  1. Go to Vote.org to check whether you are already registered to vote.
  2. If you are not registered, Vote.org will walk you through the registration process, help you locate your polling place and even let you sign up for election reminders.
  3. Planning to request an absentee ballot and/or vote by mail? Vote.org can help you with that, too.

If you need stamps and/or envelopes to send in your ballot, please ask at the Brandeis library. Check your ballot instructions to see if you need to have it notarized - these services are also being scheduled at the library. Also don't forget to check with your state voter portal (if it has one) on where your ballot might be in the process. Questions? Email Brandeis' Government Information Librarian Aimee Slater.
