Polling locations are closed Monday because of the President’s Day holiday but will reopen Tuesday and be open through Friday.
COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place at all polling places. Masks are not required but they are recommended for voters. They are, however, required for poll workers.
Voters must provide a valid form of identification to cast their ballot.
