Know Your Voting Deadlines

More articles »

There were a few changes made legislatively that change various voting dates.  We'll make sure you get warnings ahead of time, but you might want to take a look at the new election calendar posted on the Secretary of State's website.  Of note, voting by mail now begins 29 days before the election - on October 4, 2018.  Those absentee ballots need to be postmarked by October 22 to make sure they are counted (called the "worry free" postmark deadline).  

So make sure you know your election calendar this year!  Click here to see the 2018 General Election Calendar.
