What to Expect
on Election Day

On Election Day, polls are open from 6 AM to 8 PM EST. 

This is a paper ballot election. All active, registered voters will receive a vote-by-mail ballot in the mail. Vote in person by provisional paper ballot will be provided at your polling place on Election Day. Provisional ballots are just like vote-by-mail ballots and will count.

Find your polling location.


Voter ID Requirements

Photo ID is not required to vote on Election Day unless you are a first-time voter that applied to vote by mail and did not provide your driver’s license or Social Security number.

Language Access

Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act requires certain jurisdictions to provide in-language voting materials in areas with a significant number of limited English proficient voters. 

Section 208

Section 208 of the Voting Rights Act states that, “Any voter who requires assistance to vote by reason of blindness, disability, or inability to read or write may be given assistance by a person of the voter’s choice, other than the voter’s employer or agent of the employer or office or agent of the voter’s union.” 

It is your right to bring your own interpreter to the polls, if you so choose.
