Where and when do you vote?

When Elections Occur

A primary election is held on the first Tuesday in August of even-numbered years for the nomination of Democratic and Republican candidates. Minor party candidates are nominated at state party conventions, and independent candidates file by petition. The general election is held on the Tuesday following the first Monday in November of even-numbered years.

Voting Hours

State law requires that polling places open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. on Election Day; however, the county may open the polls earlier and close them later. All voters who are in line at 7 p.m. are allowed to vote.

Where to Vote

After registering, you will receive a voter registration certificate, which shows the location of your voting place. If, after checking your certificate, you are still unsure where to vote, contact your election officer for further assistance. You can also check your local newspaper, which will publish polling place addresses on or before Election Day.
