Home in Foreclosure

If a voter’s home is in foreclosure and they still reside at the property, they may still vote in that precinct and register with that property’s address.

If they have moved from the property and do not plan to return, they cannot use that residence as their address, which would be a felony. Persons must vote using the residence of where they moved to as their address, even if they are staying with family. When they move, they need to register again. Eligible voters can register up to three weeks before the election or on Election Day.

No one can legally challenge a person’s voter registration simply because they know their house is in foreclosure. To legally challenge a registration, a challenger must personally know that a person moved from the house and does not plan to come back.
