To participate in a municipal election you also have to live in the city limits of that town or city and be a registered voter. Many city councils and school boards limit the voters to only those who live in that district. Check with your local municipal election officials for more information and if you have any question about your assigned polling place.

Polls will open at 7:00 am and close at 7:00 pm.
