ONE-STOP VOTING (EARLY VOTING) FOR NOVEMBER 8, 2016 GENERAL ELECTION

One-Stop Voting or "Early Voting" is actually in-person absentee voting. The reason it is called one-stop absentee voting is that the voter has an opportunity to request, receive and vote the absentee ballot all at one time. One-Stop Voting provides an all-purpose solution for those seeking to:

  • avoid potential delays on Election Day
  • vote on convenient days and during non-working hours
  • avoid any registration conflict that could trigger the necessity of a provisional ballot on election day; or
  • update their voter records in their counties of registration if they have moved within the county since last voting.

One-Stop Voting begins on the second Thursday prior to the date of an Election and ends at 1:00 PM on the last Saturday before Election Day. During the One-Stop Absentee Voting Period, registered voters may vote at any One-Stop Early Voting site in their county of residence.
