Early Voting Facts

  • Voters do not need to provide an excuse or reason why they cannot vote on Election Day.
  • Government-issued photo ID is not required but is helpful if there is a question about the voter’s registration, address or signature. Providing an ID can also speed up the process because there are ID card readers at every check-in station.
  • You can register to vote at all early voting sites. Any voter who needs to register for the first time or file an address change must present two forms of ID, one of which shows the voter’s current address.
  • Early voting is conducted on touch screens that store every ballot style in the county, permitting any voter in the county to vote at any location.
  • Your ballot will remain secret and securely stored.
  • Voters who participate in early voting must vote in-person. 
  • You may drop off your mail-in ballot at an early voting site. 
  • If you decide to vote in-person and requested a mail-in ballot, please bring the mail-in ballot with you so it can be destroyed.
