Election Day

Vote Here sign

Registered voters could vote at any polling place during Early Voting, not so on Election Day.

Polling places will be open from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm tomorrow. Any voter in line at their assigned polling place at 7:30 pm will be able to vote.

The busiest times tend to be early in the morning and just before the polls close. Avoid longer lines by voting at off-peak times.

Voters will be asked to show photo ID when they check in.
