Check Back In Early October.

What questions do you have about the Nov. 8 general election?
Whether it's about how to register to vote or making sense of a candidate's platform, we're here to help you get ballot ready.

Does voting ever feel like cramming for a test? Ever get to the polls and feel like you didn't finish your homework? Yeah, same here! Let's create your Voter Game Plan and handle this election like a boss (Note: These guides were written for the primary and will be updated by early October).

  • First, explore our voter guides to find out more about each race — what each elected official is responsible for, what makes a good candidate, who's running, and more.
  • Next, review the frequently asked questions from voters just like you. Still have a question? Submit one and we'll do our best to get you an answer!
  • Finally, fill out a virtual ballot, specific to your address, and then print it out as a handy reference as you complete your official ballot.

Ready? Let's do this!
