Where to Vote on Election Day

The August 2nd election includes the primaries for State and Federal offices. At the voting location, you select either the Democratic or Republican ballot and then you vote for the candidate that you want to represent the party in the November 6th State and Federal General election.

The August 2nd election also includes the County General election, where the winners of the May 1st primaries for each party, as well as independent candidates, vie to be the office holder. You can vote for whichever candidate you choose, irrespective of party.

Our aim is to include the names of everyone on the ballot with links to their campaign online presence.  If we need to add a website, please contact us and provide us with the website.
