WE ENCOURAGE VOTERS TO DO THE FOLLOWING BEFORE APPEARING TO VOTE IN PERSON:

Confirm that the address on your registration is current by using the voter lookup tool on our website. If your address is not current, please submit an address change as soon as possible by visiting GOVOTETN.COM. Voters who have not updated their address before casting their ballot will be required to fill out an address change form. They may also be required to travel to another polling location if voting on Election Day.

We encourage voters to make every effort to choose one of the fourteen (14) days of Early Voting to cast your ballot. Delaying until Election Day could result in increased wait times.

Understand your ballot options and review the sample ballot before arrival at the polling place. Sample ballots are available on our website.

If you choose to vote on Election Day, make sure you know your assigned polling location by using our Voter Lookup Tool. During Early Voting, you may appear to vote at any four (4) Early Voting sites. On Election Day, the law requires voters to cast their ballot at their assigned Election Day polling location.

We have implemented many new procedures to mitigate concerns that have developed as a result of COVID-19. New procedures include:

All election officials are required to wear a mask or a face shield.

All election officials will answer health screening questions.

Routine cleaning of commonly used surfaces each day of voting will occur. Early Voting sites will have sneeze guards at each clerk’s station.

We are providing each voter with single-use ink pens and ballot secrecy folders.

Floor markers will be in place to ensure social distancing best practices.

Hand sanitizer will be available in all polling locations.

We will post signs encouraging voters to practice distancing, wear face coverings, and request that voters notify an election official if they exhibit symptoms of COVID-19.
