  • Q. What is Early Voting?

    Q. Why should I Early Vote?

    A.  The intent is to meet the needs of busy people who want more options than just voting on a single day at a single precinct. We want to remove any physical or psychological barriers that might prevent someone from voting. If you know, for example, that you have a full day's worth of activities on Election Day, you can make it easier on yourself by taking advantage of the Early Vote option. Between Early Voting, Vote by Mail ballots, and traditional polling on Election Day, there are a number of voting options, so that no one should be prevented from voting.

    Q.  Are there any drawbacks to Early Voting?

    A.  Early Voting provides flexibility and convenience. However, some voters may wish to wait until Election Day to cast their votes. Historically, there has always been a crush of last-minute news coverage or other information about the candidates that happens in the final days of a campaign. This information may be helpful in making a decision. However, if you know who you support, Early Voting may be a good option for you.

    Q. Can I change my vote?

    Q. How does this affect Vote by Mail ballots?

    A.  Early Voting is just another option to allow people to participate in the election process. Voters who may be out of town on Election Day, or otherwise be unable to cast a ballot at that time, can now choose to Early Vote or request a Vote by Mail ballot.

    Q. How will Early Voting affect the election?

    A.  Apart from providing more options as to how you vote, it is hoped that early voting will encourage more voter participation. By law, votes are tallied at the conclusion of Election Day, whether they have been through Early Voting, mail ballot or on Election Day.

    Q. What do I need to vote early?

    A.  All you need to do is show up with your current photo and signature ID. It's also a great idea to bring a Sample Ballot with you that is already marked with your choices. That way you can enter your choices on the voting machine and get quickly on your way.

    Q. I have requested a Vote by Mail ballot. Can I participate in Early Voting?

    A.  Yes. However, if you’ve requested and received a Vote by Mail ballot and you later decide to vote at one of the Early Voting locations, you can bring your mail ballot with you and surrender it.
