Change of Residence
Voters are required to notify the board of registrars of their county of residence whenever they move.
If you move within the same county in which you are registered to vote and don't notify the registrar at least 30 days prior to an election, you may vote in your old polling place for that election. You must file a notice of your new address. This can be done by writing to your county board of registrars' office, or by submitting a new voter registration application.
If you move outside the county in which you are registered to vote within 30 days of an election, you may vote in your old precinct for that election.

Remember, if you don't register to vote by the deadline, you cannot vote in that particular election.
If you have misplaced or have not received your precinct card within three to four weeks of submitting your voter registration application, please contact your local county registration office to request a new precinct card or to check the status of your application.
