Where to Vote

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. The sample ballot you received in the mail informs you of your polling location and gives you a chance to become familiar with the ballot. Your County Superintendent or Board of Elections can also provide you with information. Polls are busiest between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. so try to vote early.
