  • Voting by mail: All registered voters can request a no-excuse vote-by-mail ballot and vote from home for August’s primaries and November’s general election. Vote-by-mail requests must be received by Aug. 13 at 5 p.m. to vote in the primaries. Already mailed your ballot? Check to make sure it has been counted here.

The Republican Primary ballot is robust, and many of our local races will be decided in the primary. It is vital that you get to know the candidates on the ballot and make sure your voice is heard at the ballot box. Elections are decided by the people who go out and vote. If you don’t vote, someone else will make the decision for you. Your power is in your vote.
