This interactive map of the U.S. comes to you courtesy of MYMOVE, a site dedicated to anybody moving to a new location. Using the tool is easy. Once on the site, choose your state on the map to see your state’s voting requirements.

After doing so, you’ll see a box outlining everything you’ll need to know to prepare yourself to vote this year, including important deadlines, information on registering or re-register, and even instructions on applying for an absentee ballot.

If you keep scrolling, you’ll see the entire information directory, laid out state by state. We love this tool because every state has different rules and procedures to follow. No matter where you live, you’ll find direct links to official government resources and websites.

Some states ask that you file well before the big day. Others are much more lenient, but it’s often difficult to tell if you’re not already an ardent voter.

Our take? This site is excellent for people moving, first-time voters, or any other miscellaneous case in which a re-registration is in order. We recommend taking a peek yourself to ensure you’re ready to vote on Election Day. We’ll see you out there!

How to register to vote in any state

As far as we can tell, there is no faster or easier way to register to vote. Some states have it easier than others, and this site makes finding the information and applications you need a complete breeze.

Tools like this are excellent because they prevent voters from getting phished by false sources or falling victim to a menagerie of other voting scams. Why risk your information somewhere shady when everything you need to vote is right here waiting for you?
