Early voting for the 2012 Democratic Primary Starts Today, Monday May 14!
That’s right – The primary election date is Tuesday, May 29, but you don’t have to wait until then. In fact, with all the changes from redistricting and changes to the election schedule, it’s best that you vote as soon as possible. Precincts have been re-drawn this year, nearly everyone has a new voting precinct number, and in many cases the election day polling locations have changed as well. But if you vote early, you don’t have to worry about where to vote – and you can avoid confusion and long lines on election day.
Early Voting for the primary begins today, May 14 and runs through next Friday, May 25.
