Voter Registration Events
Our voter registration volunteers will be everywhere this fall. Look for us on foot at local events to ensure voters get registered before the General Election. We’ve found this mobile method to be more effective while our citizens are out and about.

- October 22-November 3: Advance voting in person at six convenient sites
- November 5: Advance voting 8 a.m. – noon only at Election Office
