  • Do I have to be registered as a Democrat or Republican to vote in my primary?

    It depends. If you're unaffiliated, you can vote in the partisan primary of your choice. If you're already affiliated with a political party, you can only vote in that party's primary. If you want to change parties to vote in a different primary, you must disaffiliate with the old party by February 25th.

  • Can I vote by mail?

    Yes! As long as you're registered, you can request to have your ballot mailed to you, you just have to do that by May 6th. Then, you can fill it out and mail it back by May 17th. This is called an absentee ballot. You can request your absentee ballot here.

  • Can I vote early?

    Yes! Beginning May 2nd, ending May 17th.

  • Do I need an ID?

    Normally, yes you do. But because the coronavirus has shifted voting to vote by mail, you do not need to provide a copy of your identification. However, the signature on your mail ballot must match your voter registration signature. Get the specifics from VoteRiders.
