While the November presidential election is still months away, DPC encourages its members to participate in the caucuses and primaries in your state. These elections help to shape the ultimate contest in November for President, Members of Congress, as well as for state and local office holders. To be eligible to vote, a person must be a United States citizen, at least 18 years old, and meet his or her state residency requirements. Many states offer absentee ballots that voters can send through the mail. For more information on your state guidelines for voter registration, absentee ballots and more, visit the United State Election Commission’s website.
