To register to vote on Election Day, all you have to do is provide proof of residency (like a utility bill or any official document with your address on it) and proof of identity (like a driver’s license or a passport). Same-day registration helps to increase voter turnout and allows every voter with an eligible ID to have their voice heard and their vote counted.
