Early Voting and Secure Ballot Intake Stations

Webpage last updated: August 8, 2022

What is Early Voting?

Early Voting is when a person casts a ballot prior to Election Day at a location designated by the Supervisor of Elections and deposits the voted ballot into the tabulation voting system. The voting equipment used during early voting is the same as the equipment used on Election Day.

Where are Early Voting Sites and Secure Ballot Intake Stations?

Counties are required to report to the State, no later than 30 days before the election, designated early voting sites and secure ballot intake stations including dates and available times. These designated secure ballot intake stations are available to allow voters to conveniently return their voted vote-by-mail ballots.

This information is also available at each county Supervisor of Elections’ website. For more information about the ways to return a voted vote-by-mail ballot including using a a secure ballot intake station, refer to How to Return a Vote-by-Mail Ballot.

When is Early Voting?

Early voting is required in any election that contains a state or federal office race. The early voting period must start at least on the 10th day before the election and end on the 3rd day before the election. In addition, supervisors of elections have the option to offer more early voting on the 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, 11th, or 2nd day before an election.  

Supervisors of Elections must designate early voting sites no later than 30 days prior to an election.

Early voting hours must be at least 8 hours but no more than 12 hours per day at each site during the applicable period.

The Supervisor of Elections may provide early voting for elections that are not held in conjunction with a state or federal election. However, the supervisor has the option to determine the early voting hours for those site(s).

How Do I Vote Early?

 Voters who want to vote early should present the following at the early voting site:

  • A valid photo identification; and
  • A signature identification.

Voters can vote at any early voting site within the county when the site is open.
