A driver's license number, the last 4 digits of a Social Security Number, photo identification or utility bill with current address is required to register.

Late registration. Beginning 30 days before an election and up to and including election day, citizens may register to vote and vote at the Election Office except for school elections.

Failure to vote in two consecutive federal general elections may result in the removal of an elector's name from the voting rolls. Responding to a mailed confirmation notice can prevent such removal. If an elector's name is removed from the rolls, he/she must re-register.
