We’re less than a month away from Election Day, and that means voter registration deadlines are either fast approaching or already passed. But in some areas, deadlines have changed. This year’s two major hurricanes—Florence and Michael—have caused South Carolina and Florida to at least partially delay their registration deadlines.1 In situations like these, it’s more important than ever for voters to have access to authoritative information about voter registration.
Although many third-party groups offer their own resources, the best way to register to vote (or check your existing registration) is to use the tools provided directly by states through their official websites. With that in mind, CEIR has assembled a simple, authoritative list of state-run voter registration resources in an easy-to-use voter registration hub.
CEIR’s voter registration hub is incredibly straightforward and will be continually updated to ensure voters have the most up-to-date information. At the top of the page is a map of the United States. By clicking on a state (or clicking on the name of a state beneath the map), you will be taken to state-specific information. All of the information comes directly from official state websites, and the links that CEIR provides will only direct you to those state websites, never to a third party. Thus, voters can rest assured that they are accessing legitimate, up-to-date information about how to register to vote or check their existing voter registration.

1 South Carolina moved its voter registration deadline from 10/7 to 10/17. Florida, however, only extended its deadline for receiving paper applications, and only in locations where local election supervisors have closed their offices due to Hurricane Michael (Florida democrats, however, are suing to extend the deadline for all types of registration, so that may change).
