Voter View

*Please note: If your status says “Inactive”, you may still vote.  This status just denotes that either you were sent a confirmation notice and didn’t respond, or that you’ve had no activity on your registration for a certain period of time.  If you still reside at the same address, you may vote a regular ballot at the polls on Election Day.

If you are unable to locate your voter registration information but think you are

registered to vote and you have not moved outside of your county of prior registration,

you may be eligible to cast a provisional ballot during in-person absentee voting period

at an appropriate early voting location or the county board of elections, or on Election

Day at the correct polling place for your current address that may be counted. We

encourage you to check your registration status by contacting your local county board

of elections. To find your polling place, please click here or call your county board of

elections. Click here for a full listing of Boards of Elections.
