How to Vote

Voting is Easy and Convenient    

If you're eligible to vote in this election, you can vote online using an internet-connected computer, tablet or smartphone anytime from 10 a.m. on October 15 to 8 p.m. on October 24, 2022.

Look For Your Voter Instruction Letter 

In early October, voters will receive their personalized Voter Instruction Letter in the mail. This letter will contain their Voting PIN (Personal Identification Number) along with the voting website to access the ballot. Enter the voting website provided in your letter into your browser address bar (do not enter it into a search bar). Then, using your PIN and your birthdate, you'll be able to access your online ballot and cast your votes from an internet-connected computer, tablet or smartphone.
