Register to Vote

The National Mail Voter Registration Form can be used by U.S. citizens to register to vote, to update registration information due to a change of name, make a change of address or to register with a political party. You must follow the state-specific instructions listed for your state. They begin on page 3 of the form and are listed alphabetically by state. After filling out this form, you must sign your name where indicated and send it to your state or local election office for processing. The national form also contains voter registration rules and regulations for each state and territory. For more information about registering to vote, contact your state election office.

Serving Military and Overseas U.S. Voters
Register to vote help for active-duty members of the Armed Forces, Merchant Marine, Public Health Service, NOAA, and their family members. Also, for United States citizens who are living outside the U.S. for work, school or other reasons.

Provisional Ballots
Congress passed the Help America Vote Act of 2002 (HAVA) to ensure every vote was counted by allowing voters to cast provisional ballots if there is some question about a voter’s eligibility. Provisional ballots may be utilized when the voter’s name is not on the voter list, the voter’s eligibility is challenged pursuant to state law, the voter is in the wrong polling place, or the voter cannot provide the ID required by federal or state law. However, HAVA leaves counting provisional ballots up to the discretion of the states.

Major Political Parties

Throughout most of the 20th century, although the Republican and Democratic parties alternated in power at a national level, some states were so overwhelmingly dominated by one party that nomination was usually tantamount to election. This was especially true in political party strength in the South, where the Republican Party was virtually nonexistent for the best part of a century, from the end of Reconstruction in the late 1870s to the late 1960s. Conversely, the New England states of Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire were Republican bastions, as were some Midwestern states like Iowa and North Dakota.

However, in the 1970s and 1980s, the increasingly conservative Republican Party gradually overtook the Democrats, whose support had been eroded by the Civil rights movement and its perceived liberal social policies. In the 1990s, the Republicans finally overtook the Democrats in holding majorities in statehouses and governorships in the South. In New England, the opposite trend took place; the former Republican strongholds of Maine and Vermont became solidly Democratic, as did formerly Republican areas of New Jersey, New York, and other states.

Currently, the majority of the overall number of seats held in the state legislatures has been switching between the two parties every few years. As of the U.S. gubernatorial elections of 2010, the Republican party holds an outright majority of approximately 440 with 3,890 seats (53% of total) compared to the Democratic party’s number of 3,450 (47% of total) seats elected on a partisan ballot. Of the 7,382 seats in all of the state legislatures combined, independents and third parties account for only 15 members, not counting the 49 members of the Nebraska Legislature, which is the only legislature in the nation to hold non-partisan elections to determine its members. Due to the results of the 2010 elections, Republicans took control of an additional 19 state legislative chambers, giving them majority control of both chambers in 25 states versus the Democrats’ majority control of both chambers in only 16 states, with 8 states having split or inconclusive control of both chambers (not including Nebraska); previous to the 2010 elections, it was Democrats who controlled both chambers in 27 states versus the Republican party having total control in only 14 states, with eight states divided and Nebraska being nonpartisan.

Democratic National Committee
Democrats stand for an abiding faith in the judgment of hardworking American families, and a commitment to helping the excluded, the disenfranchised and the poor strengthen our nation by earning themselves a piece of the American Dream.

Republican National Committee
Republicans believe individuals, not government, can make the best decisions; all people are entitled to equal rights; and decisions are best made close to home.

Constitution Party
The Constitution Party is a paleo-conservative political party in the United States, with the party’s goal to restore our government to its Constitutional limits and our law to its Biblical foundations

Libertarian Party
Libertarians favor minimally regulated, laissez-faire markets, strong civil liberties, minimally regulated migration across borders, and non-interventionism in foreign policy.

Reform Party of the USA
The Reform Party supports passing a Balanced Budget Amendment, campaign finance reform, enforcement of existing immigration laws and opposition to illegal immigration, opposition to free trade agreements, term limits on U.S. Representatives and Senators, direct election of the United States President by popular vote, federal elections held on weekends.

Socialist Party USA
Socialists strive for a society where working people own and control the means of production and distribution through democratically-controlled public agencies; where full employment is realized for everyone who wants to work; where workers have the right to form unions freely, and to strike and engage in other forms of job actions; and where the production of society is used for the benefit of all humanity, not for the private profit of a few.
