When to Vote and How to Register

The 2020 General Election will be on

Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

Early voting will be

October 26 through November 2.

You can register to vote during early voting or on election day. To make the voting process quicker for you, you are encouraged to register to vote by the close of voter registration on October 13. However, if you can't register by October 13, go to an early voting center in the county where you live during early voting, or go to an election day voting center in the county where you live and bring a document that proves where you live. This document can be your MVA-issued license, ID card, or change of address card, or your paycheck, bank statement, utility bill, or other government document with your name and new address.
