Head here for a state by state break down of where you have to go to do same-day registration. While in most of the states listed above you can register to vote and cast your ballot at your local polling station, others (like Michigan) require you to register at your local city or town clerk’s office.
“Wait. Where’s my polling place at tho?” you might find yourself asking. No need to fret, friend. Head here to find out.
Not sure if you’re registered? Head to vote.org to check. It’ll only take a few seconds.

Although rules vary state by state, it’s probably a good idea to bring your I.D. or driver’s license as well as proof of current residence (something like a utility bill) if you need to register to vote. You’ll also need to be a U.S. citizen and, thanks to the Twenty-sixth Amendment, at least 18 years of age to cast your ballot.
Unfortunately, people who have have not registered to vote in the states not mentioned above will not be eligible to cast their ballots on Election Day.
And if you needed some extra motivation to go out and cast your ballot, know that you will not be able to access Pornbub if you don’t. Yup, that’s right, the adult video website announced that only folks who have voted will be able to view their content on Tuesday.
Also, if you haven’t been paying attention whatsoever, democracy is kinda in the balance.
Stay in line, and you if you into problems at the polling places call 1-866-OUR-VOTE (687-8683) for assistance.
