The voting-eligible population is constructed by adjusting the
voting-age population for non-citizens and ineligible felons,
depending on state law. National estimates are further adjusted for
overseas eligible voters, but no state level adjustments are made
since their is no reliable method of apportioning overseas voters to
states (except 2008, as described in this FAQ).
Note, if you have moved between states after a registration deadline federal law guarantees you the right to vote for president in your former state (see 42 USC § 1973aa-1(e)), a little-known policy known as "Presidential Ballots". Many states also have provisions that permit voting if a person has moved within the state or locality and have not updated your registration address. Please check with your local election administrators for more information regarding your state's laws.<Back>
