If you have permanently changed counties you must re-register in the new county. This will also account for any name changes. The same registration process and registration deadlines still apply. Read more in the section above.
**If you miss the registration deadline, you may be eligible to vote using a limited ballot. This means you would vote on any measures or candidates your old and new county share in common. This is ONLY available during early voting. You may NOT vote using a limited ballot on election day. Read more about this process here.**
College students and those away from their county temporarily should follow directions for completing a ballot by mail application.
