About Early Voting (Absentee In Person)

If you think you may be out of town on Election Day, or can’t vote on Election Day for almost any other reason, you can vote early in person! It’s called “Absentee In Person” and uses the same reasons for voting by mail.

Just bring your photo ID to 151 N Main Street, 3rd floor, fill out a form, and vote right then. They’re open Monday through Friday, 8:30-4:30, as well as Saturday October 26th and November 2nd. See our Frequently Asked Questions about absentee voting.
