Foreclosures Expected To Deter Thousands Of Voters
Hovland says that if you are still living in your home, you can still vote from that address even if you are in the midst of a foreclosure.
"You can also vote from your old address even if you moved out, if you live in a state that has a right of redemption, which means there's a period of time in which you can repurchase your home, and have yet to establish a new residency," he says.
Hovland says local voting rules prevail in every case, so anyone who is confused about their ability to vote should contact their local election officials. Garfield agrees, saying the important point is for foreclosure victims to proactively confirm their ability to vote by checking with their local voter registration board.
