Voting in the United States is free and voluntary; this is an opportunity to let your voice be heard!
To vote, one must be a U.S. citizen and at least 18 years of age on election day. States also require various periods of residency before voting is permitted. Most states have two other rules as well: A voter cannot be a felon (someone who has committed a serious crime) or mentally incompetent.
