Make A Plan to Vote
Election day is Tuesday, November 2, 2021, but you do not have to wait until then to vote!
From Friday, September 17th through Saturday, October 30th, you can vote early at your local registrar’s office to avoid the crowds and lines on election day. Alternatively, you can vote by mail or fill out a ballot at home and drop it off at your local registrar. If you are not yet registered to vote, you can register online until Tuesday, October 12th.
There are a few voting changes to take into consideration this year:
- Photo ID Requirement – We no longer have to show a photo ID when voting. Instead, voters can choose from a longer list of IDs including utility bill, bank statement or paycheck with your address. Also, any registered voter who does not possess one of these forms of ID, may sign an ID Confirmation Statement at the polls.
- Election Day – Election Day is now a state holiday.
- Absentee Voting – We now have 45 days of no excuse absentee voting. Voters can vote either in-person or by mail 45 days from Election Day without an excuse.
Whether you vote early, vote by mail, or wait in line to vote on election day November 2nd, the most important thing is that you vote. As part of our union family, your voice and your opinion matter.
Do not let this election pass you by without making your voice heard.
