Voting in person or by mail available now!

For more details on each process, visit 2020 Election Information.

Note:  With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, City and County election officials encourage voters to request a ballot by U.S. mail to help protect residents and City and County employees.. A recent change means that pre-registered voters using an absentee ballot by mail don’t require a witness signature. Non-registered absentee voters registering as part of their absentee voting by mail process still must have a witness signature.  All registered voters can return ballots that are postmarked by Election Day.
