Election Day is Nov. 8. But the vast majority of the 50 states do not allow voters to register that day. Here’s a rundown of the deadlines to register by state.

The “mail” dates refer to the day by which an application must be postmarked. States that offer registration on Election Day often have special requirements. On a desktop computer, you may search for your state’s name with keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl F on a PC or Command F on a Mac.
