The November general election has arrived, with early voting kicking off Saturday, Oct. 29 and running every day until Sunday, Nov. 6.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.

Anyone eligible to vote can vote early, though your early voting polling place may differ from the one assigned to them on Election Day, the final day of voting.

If you requested an absentee ballot but want to vote in-person, you will have to fill out an affidavit ballot. Absentee ballots can also be dropped off at early voting sites while polls are open.
