What if I Move?--If you are already registered, your change of address must be received by the Board of Elections by October 10 to vote in the General Election. You can do this by filling out a new Voter Registration Form. If you move within your county and cannot notify your board of elections, you can go to the polling place for your new address and vote by affidavit ballot.  What is an Affidavit Ballot?  An Affidavit Ballot is a paper ballot and it is used when a voter's name has been omitted from the computer generated pollbook. The voter must swear that they are a registered voter and provide current and previous address.  For voting registration forms or for more information.
