Swing State Voter Calendar

Tell your friends!

If you’re in Maryland, as I am, or one of most other states in the Union that are not really in play, then you can keep moving. However, if you are in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, New Mexico or Nevada (states that are swing states according to Politico’s Swing State Map), then there are some dates you need to be aware of going into October. Notably, you need to know when the last day to register to vote (or change your party, if you’re so inclined) or request an absentee ballot.

State Register Absentee
Colorado October 5 October 27
Florida October 6 October 28
Iowa November 4* October 31
Michigan October 6 November 1
Missouri October 8 October 29
Nevada October 4 October 28
New Hampshire November 4* October 25
New Mexico October 7 October 31
Ohio October 5 October 25
Pennsylvania October 6 October 31
Virginia October 6 October 28
Wisconsin November 4* November 3

* Iowa, New Hampshire and Wisconsin allow onsite registration at the precinct voting center with proper ID

If you’re in a swing state, your vote really does matter. You don’t have much time to get registered and if you don’t vote, you can’t complain. Go do it ASAP.

And if you don’t live in a swing state, make sure your friends and readers who do see this breakdown.

    Thanks for heads up! I live in a swing state, and I’m already registered, but I have family members that need to register!
