Ways to Vote


On Election Day, you must vote at your designated polling place. You can find your assigned polling location on your voter registration card, by logging into the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page, or by contacting your County Board of Registrar's Office

Polling places are open on Election Day from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. If you are in line by 7:00 p.m., you are allowed to cast your ballot.


  • State law requires local elections officials to allow early in-person voting beginning on the fourth Monday prior to a primary or election, and as soon as possible prior to the runoff.
  • Early voting ends on the Friday immediately prior to Election Day.
  • The Secretary of State’s website has key dates for the current election cycle. 
  • Local elections officials may allow early voting beyond regular weekday business hours, but it’s up to the county.

Unlike Election Day, you do not have to vote at an assigned polling location during early voting. You may vote at any early voting location within your county. Find available early voting locations by visiting the Secretary of State’s website and selecting your county of residence from the list. You can also find available locations by logging into your My Voter Page and looking at your polling place information. If no information is available, it may be too early and you should check back closer to the early voting period.

If you have questions about your available early voting locations or if it is closer to the early voting period and no information is posted, you can contact your county registrar for more information.
