While Realtors® are registered to vote in greater proportion than members of the general public (80% v 71%), that still leaves almost 203,000 Realtors® unregistered. You might argue whether your vote makes a statistical difference with the Electoral College, but at the state and especially the local level, Realtor® votes CAN & DO make a difference.

If you are not registered, or have recently moved and your registration may be out-of-date, please click one of the boxes below and take a moment to make a difference…
