How do Federal, State and Local Elections Work?

On election day, the polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Early voting will be available at designated locations in each county prior to Election Day. Voters must present valid identification (photo ID, signature); otherwise, they must vote a Provisional ballot.

To participate in the primary election of a particular party, voters must be registered in that party. However, if all candidates for an office are from the same party and will not face opposition in the general election, then all qualified voters may cast a ballot in the primary, regardless of party affiliation.

In the general election, you may vote for the candidate of your choice without regard to political party.
