Advance voting

Advance voting is held at each county’s elections office and begins Monday, July 28 for the runoff. At the elections office, you must fill out an application and provide one of the permitted forms of identification. You will then be issued a ballot that must be filled out and cast while you are in the office.

Registration: If you were not registered for the July 15 primary, you are not eligible to vote in the runoff. You also must vote for the same party's candidates you chose in the primary. If you did not vote in the primary and are registered, you may vote in the runoff for the party of your choice.

Absentee ballots

Registered voters can apply for an absentee ballot through their county election office. You may request an absentee ballot as early as 180 days before an election. Absentee ballots must be received by the county board of registrars’ office by 7 p.m. on election day. No absentee ballots are issued on the day before or the day of an election. You may download an application for official absentee/advance ballot and mail it or fax it to your county board.
