When to Vote
There will be multiple voting opportunities for you to vote in the upcoming Election:
- Election Day: October 18. Voting stations will be open from 9am until 8pm
- Advance Voting: October 4 to 13, 1-7pm including Thanksgiving Monday (October 11). The number of Advance Voting Stations has been doubled to 12 or one per ward and voters are encouraged to vote in advance to avoid the busy crowds on Election Day.
- Special (mail-in) ballot: Voters who are unable to vote on Election Day or at an Advance Voting station can vote by mail. Applications will be available in August. According to the Local Authorities Election Act (LAEA), special ballots are available to voters who are unable to vote in the Advance Vote or on Election Day because: they have a physical disability, will be outside the jurisdiction on Election Day, or are an election worker who is working on Election Day at a voting station other than that the elector’s place of residence.
Where to Vote
More information on voting locations will be available in August.
