Our police, firefighters, and emergency service workers put their lives on the line for us every single day, and they need our full support.

Election Services says, “If you registered as an Unaffiliated voter and want to vote in the Primary Election on Tuesday, March 15, you can ask for a Republican, Democratic, Libertarian, or Nonpartisan ballot. Your choice does not change your Unaffiliated status or obligate you to vote for a party’s candidates in the General Election.

However, if there is a Primary Runoff, you can only participate in the Runoff of the same party that you selected in the original primary.”

Please vote early. Early voting is March 3-12, and there’s another section in the FAQ to show you locations and hours for early voting.

Election Day is March 15. Polls will be open from 6:30am – 7:30pm.

Use the Voter Search Tool to learn which elections you can vote in. It will also show you the location of your polling place.

(By the way, if you’d like to volunteer for this campaign at a polling place, let us know!)

Short answer – Bring an ID if you have one.

If you don’t have an ID, show up anyway! There’s a process for you to cast a ballot. Read about it here.
