Voting early in person – In July of 2022, state law was changed to create a permanent system of no-excuse early voting, which guarantees voters the right to vote early or by mail in state elections and state primaries.
Voters in the 2022 September State Primary and the 2022 November State Election were able to choose whether they wanted to vote by mail, vote early in person, or vote in person on Election Day.
Voting on Election Day: Polls will be open from at least 7AM – 8PM on election day for both the primary and general elections. Check your town or city website for more information, or visit My Election Info.
