Tuesday, November 7.
Early Voting Starts September 22nd
Please come out and vote for me!
and please consider voting early!
There are lots of reasons why people who plan on going to the polls on Election Day, don’t. They may be out of town, their work schedule isn’t convenient, an emergency comes up, they get busy….. they even forget all about it! Voting early allows you to vote at your convenience and to make sure your vote is cast.
You can vote early in two ways: In-person early voting and voting via absentee ballot (or mail-in voting). Instructions and links for both appear below,
Early In-Person Voting
Early voting starts on September 22 and runs through November 6.
