    Registration

You may register in person at the County Commissioner of Registration office or Municipal Clerk's office at any time during office hours. You must be registered at least 29 days before a specific election to vote in that election.

    Registration is permanent, but registration is required if you:

    1. change your name
    2. change your residence (if you move to another address in the county you must notify the County Commissioner of Registration or your Municipal Clerk.) If this move within a county occurs 28 days or less before an election, you may vote in your former election district for that election only. If you move to another county you must register with that county.
