Your vote is your voice – and casting your ballot is a cornerstone of democracy.
But with the clock ticking down to Election Day 2020, it’s never been more important to finalize your voting plan to ensure your voice is heard.
Return Your Absentee Ballot
Do you still have an absentee ballot? We recommend dropping your ballot off in person at a drop box or county election office before Nov. 2 (call your county to confirm locations and hours). Don’t forget to sign the back of the envelope!
If you didn't request an absentee ballot to be mailed to you, you can still skip the lines on Election Day. Vote early in-person at your county clerk’s office during regular business hours through Nov. 2.
Vote on Election Day
If you don’t have time before or just like the tradition, you can head to your local polling place on Nov. 3. Double check your polling location, request time off from work if needed, bring your I.D. and a face mask, and remember this number – 1-866-OUR-VOTE – if you run into any problems while voting. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you are in line by 7 p.m. when the polls close, you can vote – stay in line until you cast your ballot.
If you have problems voting or have additional questions, please call the national, non-partisan Election Protection hotline:
