Vote Early In Person

Voting during the early voting period couldn’t be easier and more convenient from October 13-30, 2020. Registered and eligible voters may vote at ANY early voting location located in the district. Whether you are at home, work or out running errands, you will be able to find a polling place near you.

Early voting locations will be populated on the “My Voter Page” two days prior to the first day of early voting. You may want to contact the Early Voting Clerk for State and County Elections for early voting locations.
Note: Polling place hours vary at each early voting location.

Vote Election Day

On Election day, you can vote at any location in your county of registration. You can find your voting precinct location on “My Voter Page“, which will be populated with voting sites two days prior to election day. Many newspapers publish Election Day polling locations as well. Election Day voting hours are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at all polling places statewide. For questions regarding polling places, always consult your County Elections Office. Your voting precinct number (Pct. No.) is located next to your year of birth on your voter registration certificate.
