You may register to vote at almost any time. Our City Clerks handle all voter registrations. You may come down to City Hall (105 North Dickason Blvd.)
To register you will need a valid proof of residence. A clerk will have you fill out a Voter Registration Application, and then you will be ready to vote!
Registration can be done by mail. Fill out the Voter Registration Application, make a copy of a valid proof of residence and mail the City Clerk’s office a copy of the registration and proof of residence. Please note that the proof of residence must feature the name of each person attempting to register. If your name is not on the proof of residence, you will not be registered.
Mail-in registration ends two weeks before Election Day and all registration applications must take place in the Clerk's office.
All registrations in the two weeks leading up to Election Day must be done in person at City Hall. You will still need to bring a valid proof of residence and fill out a Voter Registration Application. Please be sure your name, and the names of any other person registering with you are listed on the proofs of residence.
The Friday before the election is the last day to register before Election Day. The City Clerk’s office remains open until 5 p.m. that day to accommodate registrations.
If you miss the late registration deadline, you can still register on Election Day.
Election Day Registration
You can register at the polls. Bring a valid proof of residence and photo ID. Please be sure your name, and the names of any other person registering with you are listed on the proofs of residence.
If you choose to register on Election Day, be patient and give yourself extra time to complete the registration process before voting. Save yourself some time by printing off and filling out the Voter Registration Application. Bring the form, along with your valid proof of residence and photo ID to the polls.
