Voters should select their county of residence from the drop downs below to learn more about their voting options as well as what's on their ballot.
Ballot by Mail
Beginning February 14th, ballots will go out in the mail to voters that are:
•On the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL)

Voting in Person
In person voting varies by county. Options may include onsite early voting locations, ballot replacement centers, traditional polling places (voters must go to their assigned polling location) or vote centers (voters can visit any vote center in their county).
