Here, you can see a state-by-state break down of where you have to go to do same-day registration in your state. In most of the states listed above, you can register to vote and cast your ballot at your local polling station. Others, like Michigan, require you to register at your local city or town clerk’s office.

Head over here to your local polling place, and if you’re not sure if you’re registered of not, head to vote.org to check.

You won’t regret voting, but you might regret it if you don’t.
