My voter registration was not accepted. What should I do?

It is very important to find out precisely why your registration was denied, and what you can do to correct the situation.

The first thing you should do is contact your local election official to get details. You should be able to resolve the issue with their guidance.

You can use the Election Official Directory on our website to find the contact information for your local election official. Enter your state and jurisdiction, click "submit," and on the following page click the “Election Official Contact Details” tab.


If you cannot resolve a denied registration/ballot request issue, please submit a question to our Voter Help Desk for assistance. Be sure to include your U.S. state and county (or city/town) name, and as much detailed information as possible so that we can do our best to assist you.
