What is Early Voting?
Early Voting is a convenient voting option available to all registered voters to cast a ballot in person prior to Election Day at a location designated by the Supervisor of Elections as an Early Voting Site. Early Voting is only required for elections containing a state or federal office race and will not be offered in municipal elections. Early Voting begins approximately 10 days before a county-wide election and ends 3 days before the election.
How to Early Vote
Voters who want to early vote can cast a ballot at any early voting site located within Marion County when the site is open and must provide a current and valid photo and signature identification before receiving a ballot.
To vote at an Early Voting site or at a polling place on Election Day, voters are required to present current and valid photo and signature identification. Two forms of identification may be presented if one form contains the voter's photo and the other form contains the voter's signature.
