When registering to vote, residents should be sure to bring along an acceptable form of identification, such as a valid driver’s license, current utility bill, or bank statement.
Under state and federal laws, registered voters are not prevented from voting for moving within a county, but a change of residency for a voter’s registration address must be completed in writing on or before the day of the election.
Any registered voter who desires to vote in this election will be able to choose only one certified ballot, for one of the following political parties: Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, Constitution or Green. Voters cast these primary ballots to select the candidates for statewide and local offices to represent their respective party in the upcoming Nov. 3 General Election. Issues-only ballots are available for one statewide issue and one local issue.
