How do I know where to vote?
You must vote at the polling location designated for your address. Each address is assigned a Ward and Precinct Number. About 2-3 weeks after registering to vote, you should receive an acknowledgement in the mail which will confirm your registration has been processed and give the Ward and Precinct, as well as the Polling Location address where you will vote. Please make sure to remember your Ward and Precinct Number, as many polling locations house more that one precinct. You must be at the proper check-in table for your precinct in order to vote. Knowing this information in advance will make your experience go more smoothly. If you do not receive an acknowledgment notice from the Election Department, please contact the office using the information below.
