News Release: Election Day Tips

Here are some tips help voters prepare for Election Day.

  • Verify your registration status using our online tool, call or email us
  • Know the location of your polling place – check your sample ballot, voter information card, our website, call or email us
  • Update your address prior to Election Day so you can be directed to your proper polling location
  • Photo and Signature ID is required for all voters (if you do not present valid ID, you may vote a provisional ballot)
  • Your ballot is two-sided — be sure to vote both sides
  • If you make a mistake on your ballot, ask for a new ballot
  • You may select only one choice in each contest on the ballot
  • Study your sample ballot in advance, pre-mark it and bring it with you to the polls (sample ballots are available online)
  • You may not return your voted absentee ballot to your precinct on Election Day — it must be returned to the Elections Office by 7 pm for it to be counted
  • If you need any type of assistance or have questions, simply ask one of the election officials at your polling location
  • Early voting ended Saturday — you must go to your precinct’s polling location
  • Busiest times at the polls are from 7:00 am until 9:00 am, and from 4:30 pm until the polls close at 7:00 pm
