Election guide: Here's a full list of 2016 voter registration deadlines by state

With nearly 70% of citizens registered to vote, there are still millions of eligible voters who are still not able to cast a ballot on election day. Citizens who will be 18 or older at the time of the election can register to vote in most states. Other states offer pre-registration options to people as young as 16. A majority of states offer online voter registration beyond typical in-person or mail-in registration. 

But the key to registering to vote: knowing your deadline. A majority of states do not have same-day voter registration and require voters to register weeks before the election. And states have updated details on how long voters have to register. Google cannot be trusted for voter registration deadlines.
