There are three ways to vote in the upcoming election: by absentee, early voting, and on Election Day.

Voters who wish to receive an absentee ballot have until 5 p.m. on Wed., Oct. 30th, to submit their request online, by email or by telephone.

Completed absentee ballots must be received by the county’s election department by Tuesday, Nov. 5th, at 7 p.m. to be accepted as valid.
