Election Day Practices

On Election Day, the polls are open 7am-6pm.

  • Poll workers may ask to see a signed form of ID, but this is not required to vote. If you do not come to the polls with proper ID, you will be asked to give your date of birth and address for verification. The only individuals who require ID are first time voters who registered by mail without providing proof of ID with their application. Further information about what types of ID to produce can be found on the application here.
