Hi D.

C., if you want to vote in  the 2022 elections there are three   steps you need to take. Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   All District of Columbia voters can  register online until October 18th.   You can find the form at

If  it’s past the 18th, you can still register all   the way through election day by going to your  Board of Elections office or vote center.   Then it’s time to make your plan  for how you’re going to vote.   Living in D. C. makes it pretty easy for you.  As long as you’re registered by the deadline,   they’ll send a ballot to your house.  You don’t even have to ask for it.   But if you need it sent somewhere other than  your home address, like if you are going to   be out of town or go to school in another  state, update your voter registration to   let them know before October 24th. You can either mail your ballot back or   drop it off at a vote center or  drop box by November 8th.   If you’d prefer to vote in person or are  registering late, you can use   to find a vote center near you.

They’re open  from starting October 28th until November 7th,   and on November 8th from 7am to 8pm. If you’re voting in DC for the first time,   be sure to bring an ID, like a drivers license,  passport, or a utility bill, bank statement, or   paycheck with your name and address on it. So once you have your plan for how you’re going   to register, and how and when you want to  return your ballot, you just need to follow   the plan and 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  here 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 best chance to choose who  gets to make decisions about your life:   all the way from your delegate to congress  to your Mayor and city council.   We’ve put all the links for everything you need  to register, vote in person, or track your mail   ballot at Thank you for voting!
