Change Of Address

Changing Your Voter Registration Address

A registered voter who has moved within St. Clair County must notify the election authority of the change of address and thereby request transfer of his/her registration to the new address or re-register to vote from the new address.

How can I change my address for voting purposes?

  • Complete the back of your voter registration card and mail it to the Board of Election Commissioners.
  • Complete a change of address form and mail it to the Board of Election Commissioners.
  • Notify the Board of Elections office in writing of the address change, including your name, birth date, previous and new addresses, phone number, and your signature.
  • Change your address at the Driver’s License Facility when you change or renew your Driver’s License. Make sure to answer “yes” when they ask if you wish to register to vote, and get a receipt of registration.

When must I change my address?

The change of address must be received by the Election Board or postmarked not later than 28 days prior to an election. We encourage you to change it with us as soon as possible after your move.

Can I change my address by telephone or online?

No. We must have a voter’s signature to change his/her address.

What must I do to be registered if I change my name?

Any previously registered voter who changes his/her name must re-register and cancel the former registration. A change of name requires a new registration and a new signature from the applicant.
