You can check on your ballot, every step of the way by signing up for “Where’s My Ballot”.  

Can I still Vote in Person?

Yes, Polling Places will be open for four days.  There will be fewer locations than in previous elections so your polling site will probably be different.  

If you need to vote in person, you are being urged to take advantage of early voting which will occur at:

  • The Registrar’s Office beginning October 5th, Monday – Friday from 8 am – 5 pm
  • At your assigned polling place or the Registrar’s Office on Saturday, October 31st through Monday, November 2nd from 6 am – 5 pm.
  • On election day, November 3rd from 7 am – 8 pm.  DON’T BE SURPRISED IF LINES ARE LONG.

You must vote at your assigned polling place.  You can find information on your assigned polling place on the back of your sample ballot and voter information pamphlet or you can look it up online
