Take Action Tuesday: Vote Today!

November 9, 2016

Today is Election Day! Don’t miss your opportunity to cast your vote in the 2016 general election. Polls will open at 7 a.m. today and close tonight at 8 pm. Not sure where to go? Find your polling place here.

Be sure to bring identification with you, whether it’s a voter identification card, driver’s license, state or military ID card, passport, or a hunting or fishing license. After presenting your identification, you will be asked to sign the precinct register next to your printed name. If you do not have identification, or your name does not appear on the precinct register, you must vote a questioned ballot.

Once you receive your ballot, completely fill in the oval next to your choice. You only have to mark the races or issues you choose to vote. Sections that are marked improperly will not be counted, so if you make a mistake ask an election worker for a new ballot. When your ballot is complete, place it into the ballot box. Once your vote has been cast, you cannot receive another ballot.

If you need assistance with any part of the voting process – including language assistance – ask an election worker for help.
