Early Voting is in full swing!

Early Voting began on Monday, October 24, and ends on Friday, November 4.  Election Day is Tuesday, November 8. Having a game plan—knowing when and where you are going to vote, and how you will get there—is important! Between work, family, weather, traffic and all the unexpected things life throws our way, it's easy to forget to vote. Follow these helpful steps to get you started:

1. Check your voter registration status.
2. Look over a sample ballot so you know who and what you're voting for.
4. Choose your polling location, date, and time so you don't have to rush. 
5. Go vote, and encourage others to do the same!
