Early Voting

All registered voters can vote early this fall! Polls will be open October 24th-November 1st. Your Early Voting site may be different from your Election Day poll site, so make sure to check before you go.

Voting by Mail

All registered voters can vote by mail by requesting an absentee ballot. The deadline is October 27th, but we recommend requesting your ballot now. You can mark the reason as “Temporary illness or disability,” which includes the risk of contracting the coronavirus. After you complete your ballot, make sure to sign, date, and seal your absentee ballot envelope.

Election Day

As always, registered voters can vote in-person on Election Day. We expect high turnout, so lines may be long at some poll sites. If you’re worried about crowds, we recommend voting early.

What to Expect at Your Poll Site

When you get to your Early Voting location or Election Day poll site, you will need to check-in, mark both sides of your ballot, then scan it in. Make sure to get your “I Voted” sticker and show it off!
