Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) begins Wednesday, February 19. Eligible residents who missed the February 18, registration deadline may complete a voter registration form available at the Elections Office or at any Vote Center. Upon completion of the form, a VRE representative will provide the individual with a CVR provisional ballot which must be voted at the time and location it is received. Once the registration form has been processed and eligibility is verified the CVR ballot is counted. Residents who are unsure of their voter registration status may use the voter registration lookup on the website to determine their status.

Voters are encouraged to vote their ballot, sign their pink Vote by Mail envelope and return their ballots early.
