    2018 Polling Location Changes

    Every election, we have to change the locations of some polling places. We will send you an updated Voter Information Card or a postcard to let you know if your polling place has changed. We also include your current polling place on the sample ballots that we mail out.  The current list of location changes for 2018 can be found here. Look up your Election Day polling place here.
