Election Day, Nov. 6, is rapidly approaching, and deadlines to register are even closer. High Black voter turnout will be instrumental for Democrats to retake Congress, as well as gubernatorial races in Florida, Maryland, and Georgia—three states where Black candidates could make history.
Deadlines to register have passed in Alaska and Rhode Island, and some states don’t allow online registration. Here is a list of upcoming deadlines in the other states and the District of Columbia:
Arkansas: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 9.
Maine: Mail deadline is Oct. 16. In-person registration is permitted through Election Day.
Michigan: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 9.
Mississippi: In-person deadline is Oct. 8 and by mail on Oct. 9.
Montana: In-person deadline was Oct. 7—however, late in-person registration is available, but only at county election offices through Election Day. Mailed forms must be received by Oct. 10.
New Hampshire: In person continues through Election Day. Mailed forms must be received by Oct. 27.
New Jersey: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 16.
North Carolina: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 12. (28 counties affected by Hurricane Florence have an extension to Oct. 15.) From Oct. 17 to Nov. 3, residents can register and vote simultaneously at early voting sites.
North Dakota: Voters are not required to register before Election Day but must present an ID at the polls.
Oklahoma: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 12.
South Dakota: In-person deadline is Oct. 22. Mailed forms must be received by Oct. 22.
Texas: In-person or by mail deadline is Oct. 9.
Wyoming: In person permitted through Election Day. Mailed forms must be received by Oct. 22.

This singing in praise by #BothamJean is so beautiful and uplifting. Remember him and seek justice for him, taking on the police officer who killed him physically and the organised smear campaign trying to kill his remembrance. pic.twitter.com/tHouNYPKjd— Ben Phillips (@benphillips76) September 15, 2018
