Election 2020 Information


A message from the City Clerk: 
While voters who have requested and received an absentee ballot can choose not to vote absentee and instead visit the polls on Election Day, the City Clerk’s Office strongly encourages voters to utilize their absentee ballot if they are issued one. This helps reduce ballot waste, cuts down on wait times at the polls on Election Day, and helps ensure everyone has the opportunity to cast a ballot – however they choose to do it.
