Ballots are already in the mail, the deadline for requesting a mail in ballot is fast approaching. The last day to apply for a vote by mail ballot is Tuesday May 27th. If you vote by mail and have not returned your ballot, you must bring it to any polling place in your county before polls close on Election Day.

On Election Day, polls are open from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM. If you are in line at your polling place before 8:00 p.m., you will be able to vote.

If your name does not appear on the voter list at your polling place, you have the right to cast a provisional ballot at any polling place in the county in which you are registered to vote.

If you moved to your new address after May 19, 2014, you may vote at your former polling place.
