The midterm elections are on November 7, 2023.

Absentee voting (aka “mail-in voting” and “by-mail voting”) is conducted by mail-in ballot before the day of Election Day.  Most states will mail a ballot to voters if certain conditions are met. The voter may return the ballot in person or by mail.  Some states will let voters apply for an absentee ballot in person before Election Day and then submit the ballot that same day.

All application and submission deadlines for the primary and general elections will be displayed on this website.

According to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, the National Mail Voter Registration Form can be used to register U.S. citizens to vote, to update registration information due to a change of name, make a change of address or to register with a political party.

Sometimes circumstances make it hard or impossible for you to vote on Election Day. Your state may permit you to vote during a designated early voting period. This lets registered voters vote on specified dates before Election Day. View your state page to see if you can participate in early voting. To learn more about early voting, visit this page
