The election is a month away and early voting begins two weeks from Saturday, Oct. 20, and runs through Nov. 2.  

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.    

But you can’t vote if you aren’t registered.  

Oct. 9 is the last day to register to vote or update your existing registration, without having to appear in-person at the Election Department offices, or without having to register on the Secretary of State’s website.

You can register to vote online up to Oct. 18, but you will not be guaranteed a sample ballot by mail if you wait until the last two days.

You can register to vote by mail as long as the form is postmarked by Oct. 9.

And you can register in person by Oct. 16 at your local election department.  

You can check your registration and update your registration on-line, too.  

Information for voters who are overseas or in the armed services can be found on the Secretary of State’s website.
