The regular voter registration deadline is 15 days before each Election Day. If you register by this date, we will mail you a ballot and you can choose to vote by mail or in person. If you miss this deadline, you can still register and vote in person.
Anytime during the voting period, you can register and vote at the City Hall Voting Center. On Election Day, you can also register and vote at a polling place. After registering to vote, you will get a provisional ballot. After we confirm you are eligible to vote in the current election, we will count your provisional ballot. You can use the Voter Portal or Provisional Ballot Lookup tool to make sure we counted your ballot.
If you are in the military, overseas, or a person with a disability, you can register online after the deadline. If you are eligible, follow these four steps:
- Register to vote online.
- Contact us to request a ballot.
- We will process your registration and send you a link to access your ballot.
- Mark your ballot, print it, and return it by Election Day.
