Election Day is Tuesday, November 3. If you haven’t had a chance to vote early, there is still time, or you can cast your vote at the polls on Election Day.
You may request an absentee ballot without a reason until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 30. However, if you have already received your absentee ballot, you can deposit it in the drop box behind City Hall any time until 8:00 p.m. on Election Day. The drop box is emptied frequently, and is monitored 24 hours a day by a security camera.
City Hall will also be open on Saturday, October 31, from 9:00 a.m. until noon, but not for early voting, as they will be busy processing ballots. You can, however, register to vote at City Hall on Monday, November 2 or Tuesday, November 3. The City Clerk’s office will be open for election-related business ONLY on Election Day.
If you plan to vote in person on Election Day, the polls are open from 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Ward 1 votes at Nasson Community Center Gym in Springvale; Ward 2 votes at St. Ignatius Hall on Riverside Ave.; Ward 3 votes at Sanford High School / SRTC (use door #41). If you aren’t sure what ward you are in, see this list.
