How to Get a Voter Registration Card

When you register to vote or change your registration, you will be sent a voter registration card. Your voter registration card typically includes your name, home address, and the address of the polling station where you will vote.

When You Will Receive Your Voter Registration Card

It may take a few weeks to get your new voter registration card in the mail. Your state's election office will let you know if there is a problem with your registration.

If you do not receive your new voter registration card, check with your state or local election office.

How To Replace Your Voter Registration Card

If your voter registration card was lost, damaged, or stolen, you can replace it by contacting your state or local election office.

You Do Not Need To Bring Your Card To Vote

If you are a registered voter, you will not need your voter registration card on Election Day. But, you may need other identification since some states require a photo ID to vote. Use this chart to learn if you need to bring a photo ID when you vote.
