Top FAQs

When is early voting?

Early Voting begins 10 days before Election Day and ends on the Sunday before Election Day.

Can I vote early if I requested or submitted an absentee ballot?

If you requested an absentee ballot, then you should plan to vote with it. You can drop off your completed absentee ballot at any early voting site while polls are open. However, if you choose to vote in person after requesting an absentee ballot, you will have to vote with an affidavit ballot at your poll site. This ballot will look different. Ask a poll worker for help if you need it.

What are the benefits of early voting?

Early voting gives voters more flexibility, reduces wait times on Election Day, and eases the burden on poll workers, creating a more pleasant voting experience for everyone!

Why do we vote early?

Early voting was signed into law by the Governor in 2019. It had bipartisan support in the State Senate and Assembly.
