Please note that this November election will differ somewhat from last year’s. You will not receive a Vote-by-Mail ballot unless you have requested one, and you may not deliver a completed Vote-by-Mail ballot to a polling place. Instead, mail it or use a drop box (locations listed on county websites).

New this year: Early in-person voting will take place October 23–30 between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. and on Sunday, October 31 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Visit your county clerk’s website for early voting locations and to register (October 12 postmark) or to apply for Vote-by-Mail ballots (application must be received by October 26).

The League of Women Voters encourages civic engagement. Board (poll) workers are needed for early voting and on November 2. Students aged 16-17 may work half days, and all board workers are compensated. Contact your county board of elections for an application. Students should ask whether a special student application is required.
