A very important day is nearly upon us - our city's Primary Election on Tuesday, September 5, 2023. Today, August 14, ballots are being mailed out to all registered voters in our city. So, prepare to exercise your right to vote! Over the next couple of days, watch your mailboxes closely for your official election ballot.
Voting in this election is as simple as making your selections and dropping your ballot back in the mail. There’s no waiting in line, no pressure, just your voice being heard through your ballot. Remember, to be counted, your ballot must be postmarked on or before September 5, 2023 (the day before the election).
