Any registered voter can vote. If you are not registered to vote, learn about how to register.
When can I vote?
You can either vote in person during early voting or on election day or by absentee ballot.
Early voting starts the 2nd Thursday before an election through the Thursday before an election. Each early voting center will be open continuously from 10 am to 8 pm each day. Anyone in line at 8 pm will be allowed to vote.
On election day, you can vote at your assigned polling place. If you do not know where your polling place is, please visit our voter look-up website. On election day, polling places are open continuously from 7 am until 8 pm on. Anyone in line at 8 pm will be allowed to vote.
On election day, you should vote where you live. If your voter registration is up-to-date, you can refer to your Voter Notification Card for your precinct number and polling place location or use the voter look-up website. However, if you moved and have not updated your voter registration information, enter your new address in the Polling Place Locator. You will be required to vote a provisional ballot at the new polling place.
How will I cast my vote?
During early voting or on election day, you will vote on a touchscreen voting system. With a touchscreen voting system, you touch the screen to make, change, and review selections and cast a ballot.
There will be instructions available at the early voting centers and at your polling place to familiarize you with the ballot. You may ask an election judge to explain how to vote, but you must cast your vote alone, unless you are unable to do so because you have a disability or are unable to read or write the English language.
For absentee voting and provisional voting, you will use a paper-based optical scan voting system. With this system, you are issued a paper ballot and fill in the oval next to the candidate or ballot question response for which you want to vote. At the local board of elections, the ballot is fed into a scanning unit, which reads and tabulates the selections you made.
