Those eligible to cast ballots in the upcoming election may vote early at the following locations:

These sites will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Thursday. Those choosing to vote early do not need to provide a reason or excuse.

However, in an effort to prevent vote fraud and double voting, state law requires early voters to display valid identification to an election official before receiving a ballot to vote early. Valid forms of ID include: a current driver’s license, state-issued ID card or another government-issued ID with a photograph.
