Who can vote?

You must be a registered voter in order to vote in the general or primary elections. To register, you must be a United States citizen, be 18 years old (you may pre-register at 16 or 17 but cannot vote until you are 18), live in the county, city or village for at least 30 days before an election, not be in prison for a felony conviction, and not claim the right to vote elsewhere.
