Pre-registration deadline for November 5 election

Pre-register to vote in the General Election this November by October 15!

If you think you’re already registered, check your registration to ensure that you are registered at your current address and that all the information is correct.

If you don’t register by end of day October 15, you can still do so at your polling place when you vote. Be sure to bring the necessary documentation with you to the polls. See accepted IDs and documents.

Now is also a good time to learn your polling location and see a sample ballot. Your polling location may have changed since the last time you voted, so it’s always good to check.

Why Vote in Primaries?

A primary election determines which candidates appear on the ballot for the November general election. If you don’t vote for your preferred candidate in the primary election, they may not appear on the ballot in November.
