Voting early can help you beat the line on Election Day and keep you and others safe and healthy this fall.
Any registered voter who has not already cast a ballot by mail can vote early in-person, no excuse is needed.
Early voting is available during the General Election from October 17, 2020 to October 30, 2020. You don’t need to make an appointment or apply to vote early.
Step 1. Find your early vote location
All cities and towns must have one early voting site, but many have more. On weekdays, each city and town must offer early voting in at least one location during the local election office’s regular business hours. On the weekends of October 17-18 and October 24-25, every community must be open each day. The number of hours each community must be open on the weekend depends on the size of the city or town.
Step 2. Be prepared.
Early vote locations will be clean, set up for social distancing, and workers will be equipped with PPE. To keep yourself and others safe, remember:
- Wear a mask when outside or around others.
- Wear disposable gloves, if possible.
- Bring your own black ballpoint pen.
- Bring hand sanitizer.
If you’re voting for the first time or if you have not voted this year, you may be considered to be an inactive voter. Bring some form of identification–driver’s license, utility bill, bank statement, anything that has your address on it–to make sure that your vote will count.
Step 3. Vote!

After you finish voting, you will seal your ballot in a ballot envelope and sign the affidavit on the envelope and return to an election official. Once you have handed in your ballot envelope and the clerk accepts it, your vote is final and you cannot take it back or vote again.
