How Do I Find My Polling Place?
The location where you will vote on Election Day, also known as your "polling place," is determined by your address. After you've registered to vote, you will receive a notification in the mail from the elections office. In some states, this notification will be a "voter ID card." This notice will confirm that you are now a registered voter (congratulations!). The notice may also include information about where your polling place will be, so make sure you hold on to it.
In some states, you will receive a "sample ballot" as Election Day nears. This booklet or paper may include your specific polling place for your home address, so you should definitely save it. You may want to mark your "sample ballot" with your voting choices and bring it with you on Election Day.
Polling places can change up until the last minute, so make sure to double-check your polling place online or by phone. Check with your local elections official (click here to find their contact information).
