About Early Voting

The 2004 Legislature passed legislation which standardizes early voting throughout the state. Early voting is defined as "casting a ballot prior to Election Day at a location designated by the Supervisor of Elections and depositing the voted ballot in the tabulation system."

Under the new House Bill 1355 directive, which went into effect May 2011, all Supervisors will begin conducting early voting in their main and branch offices 10 days before the election and ends on the 3rd day before an election. In addition, Supervisors may designate any city hall or public library as an early voting site; however, if so designated, these sites must be geographically located so that all voters in the county have an equal opportunity to cast a vote.

Early voting will be conducted no less than 6 hours and no more than 12 hours per day. The hours will be determined at the discretion of the Supervisor of Elections. Voting sites and hours of operation will be provided 30 days prior to an election.

Voters who want to vote early should remember to bring a photo and signature identification with them.
