Your Precinct and Polling Place:
On Election Day, Voters will be required to vote at the precinct in which they reside and where they are registered. Voters can refer to their voter information card to locate their appropriate polling place. If your polling place has changed, our office will notify you of the new location by sending you an updated voter information card through the mail. Any changes will also be featured in various local newspapers prior to the election.
Note: Voters can also use our Precinct Finder feature.
What are the Hours the Polls are Open?
Polls will be opened from 7 a. m. to 7 p. m on Election Day.
What Type of ID do I need in order to Vote?
