Early voting for November elections is here! You can vote early if you’re busy on Nov. 6, or you just want to avoid the crowd. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Early voting is Oct. 23-30 (except Sun. Oct. 28) from 8:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.
  • You’ll need your driver’s license, valid state ID or some other generally recognized picture ID that has your name and signature. People without a photo ID may bring a utility bill, payroll check or government document that includes their name and address but they will have to sign an affidavit by the Elections Division in order to vote.

Here are the early voting locations:
