Voters can register to vote online, by mail (postmarked by Oct. 9), or in person at the Board of Elections Office in the Public Safety Center in Swan Quarter.

After the regular voter registration deadline, you can still register and vote in person at one-stop sites during the early voting period, which runs from Thursday, Oct. 15, to Saturday, Oct. 31.

Same-day registrants must attest to their eligibility and provide proof of residence. Within two business days, the county board of elections will review the registration and the registrant’s address. Your vote will be counted unless the county board of elections determines that you are not qualified to vote.
