Mail-In Voting



All registered voters are set to receive a mail-in ballot, and you have the option to mail in your vote by following the instructions on the envelope provided. Once you have filled out the mail-in ballot, you have a few options to return it:

  1. You can mail it to the office of your county elections official on or before election day. You can find information about your county election official here. You can also find their office hours and phone number if you have questions!
  2. You can return your mail-in ballot to a polling location before polls close at 8:00 p.m. on election day.
  3. You can drop off your ballot in one of many county drop boxes.
  4. You can have someone drop off the ballot on your behalf, as long as it’s properly marked on the envelope.

While all registered voters should automatically be eligible and receive a mail-in ballot, if you need a mail-in ballot and haven’t received one you can apply for one here as long as it’s at least seven days before the election.

Voter Registration



If you still need to register to vote, you have until October 24th to complete your registration. You can do this online. If you’d prefer a paper application to register, you can pick them up at your county elections office or a local DMV. You can also contact Election Division Staff at (800)-345-VOTE(8683) or send them an email here in order to have one sent to you.

If you’re not sure if you’re already registered to vote, you can also check your voter status online to make sure that you’re ready for election day. Even if it’s already passed October 24th, there is also special same day voter registration available at county election offices, polling places, or voting centers. Additional information about same day voting is available here.
