Changing your address on a voter identification card is a simple process online. You go to the appropriate state website and complete the form to make the changes. Anytime you move to a new residence within the county or beyond, you must change your address on the voter ID card. If you fail to adjust the address 30 days prior to an election, you might have to return to your previous precinct to vote.

  1. 1

    Go to your state's Supervisor of Elections or Secretary of State website. Look for the option to fill in a registration form. Every state has a site dedicated to helping people make changes to their voter ID card.

  2. 2

    Complete the online voter registration form to change your address in a voter ID card. Place the old and new address on the form. You will be required to submit identifying information, such as your driver's license and Social Security number.

  3. 3

    Wait 30 days for the change to take effect. You should receive the new voter ID card within six weeks. It is prudent to check for the registration date deadlines to avoid any potential confusion around election time.
