So you live in a US Territory and you  want to vote in 2022.

There are three   steps you need to take. Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   We’re going to go through the steps and deadlines  for all five US territories, so you can scroll   ahead to wherever you live, and we’ve put together  all the links for everything you need to register   and vote at howtovote.link/territories Let's start with American Samoa.

You can register   by mail or in person by visiting your Election  Office, until October 11th. If you’ll be out of   town or can’t make it to the polls due to illness  or disability you can request an absentee ballot   be mailed to you, but you need to request it  by October 25th. Once ballots are finalized,   usually in early October, you can also vote  absentee in person at your election office, and   of course, you can vote at your polling place on  election day, November 8th, from 6am to 6pm.   If you live in Guam you can register online or  in person by visiting your Election Commission   office, Motor Vehicle Division office, or Mayor’s  office, until October 28th.

If you’ll be out of   town or have a disability that prevents you from  voting in person, you can request an absentee   ballot be mailed to you by November 5th. You can also vote absentee in person at your   election office from October 10th through  November 3rd, otherwise you can vote at   your polling place on election day,  November 8th, from 7am to 8pm.   Northern Mariana Islands wants you to register  by mail or in person by visiting your Election   Office by September 9th. If you’ll be out of  town or can’t make it to the polls due to illness   or disability you can contact the Commonwealth  Election Commission to request an absentee ballot   by October 14th.

You can also vote early in person  at your election office from November 1st through   the 7th, or you can go to your polling place on  election day, November 8th, from 7am to 7pm.   Puerto Rico! There’s no general election  for you this year, but you can participate   in special municipal elections. We’ve linked a  calendar for all their dates and deadlines.   But while you’re waiting for your next chance  to vote, you can still register at any time by   visiting your Junta de Inscripción Permanente  (alt: at your local registration office) and we   have a list of their locations  and hours linked too.   And finally, US Virgin Islands.

You can register  in person by visiting your District Election   Office until October 8th. If you’ll be out  of town or can’t vote in person because of an   illness or disability you can request an absentee  ballot by mail, and the deadline to request it is   September 16th. You can vote early in person at  your election office from October 10th to 31st,   or you can vote at your polling place on election  day, November 8th, from 7am to 7pm.   The last thing you should all do is make your  plan.

Figure out when you’re going to register,   how you’re going to vote, where you need  to go, what time you’re going to vote,   and what ID you’re going to bring if you need  one. Then you just need to follow the plan,   and go vote on or before November 8th. If you want to know everything that you can   vote for ahead of time, you can find a sample  ballot at your local election authority website   so you have time to research candidates and  make your decisions.

You don’t have to vote for   everything for your ballot to count, but this is  your chance to choose who gets to make decisions   about your life: all the way from your delegate  to the US Congress to local offices like governor,   mayor, city council, or school board. We’ve put all the links for everything you   need to register, vote early, find your  polling place, and locate your sample ballot   at howtovote.link/territories. Thank you for voting!
