Press Release:

Election is Tuesday, December 4, the polls will be open from 7 AM to 7 PM in all 159 counties for Election Day with two state-wide run-off elections.   Secretary of State Robyn A. Crittenden encourages all eligible voters who have not already voted to make their voices heard in these important contests.

You must have been registered to vote by October 9, 2018 to vote in this run-off election, but you did not have to actually vote in the November 6, 2018 election to be able to cast a ballot tomorrow. Check the My Voter Page for on-demand, personalized voting information, including the status of your absentee ballot if you requested one, your polling place location, and your sample ballot for tomorrow’s run-off election.

Based on a federal Consent Order signed on Friday, November 30, 2018, an absentee ballot postmarked by December 4, 2018 – the date of the run-off election – and received by county election offices by December 7, 2018 must be counted if the ballot is otherwise valid. This Consent Order only applies to the December 4, 2018 run-off election.

The Secretary of State’s Election Night Results website will provide unofficial results after the close of the polls tomorrow once local officials begin to upload tabulated results. The website will not reflect final numbers for absentee by mail and provisional ballots on election night. On this website, “100% reporting” refers to reporting by early voting and Election Day precincts. It does not reflect all potential absentee by mail and provisional ballot numbers. This website is updated throughout the evening and the days following the election as counties continue to tabulate valid absentee by mail and provisional ballots.
