VOTE! It’s Election Day.

The day has finally come for our municipal elections, non-partisan elections held across the state to decide positions across city governments such as mayors, city council members, school board representatives and special service district officials (like water, sewer and parks & rec). Different counties have different voting procedures, so be sure to follow the rules and deadlines in your areas for voting.
