Yes but you must bring an identification with you that lists your name and address as it appears on the voting list and you will sign a roster stating that you currently and continuously resided at that address since you became an inactive voter. An inactive voter does not mean you do not vote, it means that we did not receive your annual local census form. For more information, go to Inactive Voters

Is there early voting? No, but if you will be out of the city when the polls are open, have a physical inability to get to the polls or have a religious belief that would prevent you from voting on election day, you can vote by absentee ballot.
