Change of Polling Place

Polling place locations are not permanent, and locations may change from one election to another.

Cities and towns select polling place locations. School districts select their own polling place locations if they are the only jurisdiction holding an election. The Office of the Secretary of State does not assign or change specific polling places.

  • The most common reason a polling place changes is the location is no longer available or suitable.
  • Polling places might change when precinct boundaries are redrawn, which happens every 10 years. Learn more about the redistricting process.
  • Voters who live in a mail ballot precinct might vote in person for local elections.
  • Polling place locations may change during a school district election, if it is the only jurisdiction holding an election.

Use the polling place finder to find out where to vote.
