When it comes to voting there are some guidelines. Any person that wants to vote must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 years of age. If a student wants to register to vote, the school address can be used. A person can check if they are registered to vote by calling their home state election officials or logging on to canivote.org.
An absentee ballot is another way to vote without going to the polls on Election Day. You can request one in person, by mail, over the telephone or online. Dixon said, originally, absentee ballots were for those serving in the military, but now they have been made available to everyone to increase participation in the elections.
