Grace Period Registration and Voting

Grace period registration and voting extends the registration period by allowing voters to register and vote until the day before an election. It is also the only way to vote if you are not registered or if your voter registration is not up to date. However, guidelines limit when and where grace period registrants can vote. During grace period registration, voters must register and vote in person at one of the locations listed below.

Individuals wishing to vote during the grace period must bring two pieces of identification to register. Grace period registrants immediately cast their ballot after registering to vote.

Election Day registration will also be offered at limited sites.

Hours and Locations

The grace period hours and locations will be posted as soon as they are finalized for the Nov. 4, 2014 General Election.
