Things to Remember About Voting 

Voting a straight ticket? You still have to mark your selections for U.S. president, judges and constitutional amendments or your vote on those items won't be counted.

Remember your picture ID. If you have recently registered or re-registered, you might be asked for a picture ID. It's a good idea to take it with you, anyway.

Vote early to avoid the Election Day rush. You can even do it on the weekend! Early voting is available statewide now through Oct. 30 at these locations. Check with your county Board of Elections office for more details.
