    If you intend to vote in the 2020 Presidential Election then you will need to register to vote to ensure you will be eligible to cast a ballot. While 21 states and the District of Columbia offer same-day registration on election day if you wish to vote in person, the vast majority of states require you to register to vote before election day if you wish to vote early or cast an absentee ballot.

    There are many benefits in registering to vote before election day, none more so important than ensuring you won't run into any potential obstacles when election day arrives. Most states have their own sets of voter registration rules and requirements and if you wait until the last minute to register then you may run into an unforeseen issue that prevents you from registering, which will force you to cast a provisional ballot.

    Another reason to register to vote before election day is to give yourself the opportunity to cast your ballot early. All but 11 states offer some form of early voting, which can be quite beneficial for citizens who have jobs that make it difficult to go stand in line to vote on election day, among a whole host of other potential conflicts.

    So, if you want to avoid any conflicts or unforeseen issues on election day, registering to vote before the election is by far the best thing you can do. It is the best way you can be certain that your vote will count on election night.

    Well put. I'd also like to add that there are 11 states that will only let you register in-person or by mail. With restrictions going on, it may make the in-person way an obstacle.

    Yeah this is especially important for 2020 elections as we currently have no idea what in-person voting is going to look like on election day. Not sure what form of social distancing measures are going to be in place come November. but its safe to assume it could take much longer to vote this time around as states attempt to make the process safe, health wise. Last thing you want is to get to the front of line only to be told you didn't register properly or register in time.
