    For the June 7 election, three parties allow voters with No Party Preference to request to vote in their presidential primary elections: the American Independent Party, the Democratic Party, and the Libertarian Party.

    Voters with No Party Preference may request a party ballot from one of the above parties through Election Day, June 7. However, the Department will not mail replacement ballots after June 1 because there may not be enough time for voters to receive them by Election Day. You have two options to get a replacement ballot with the presidential primary contest of the American Independent Party, Democratic Party, or Libertarian Party:

    1. Vote at the City Hall Voting Center, located in front of Room 48.
      Voting Center hours are:
      • Weekdays through June 6, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
      • Saturday and Sunday, June 4 – 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (The public entrance to City Hall is on Grove Street)
      • Election Day, Tuesday, June 7, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
      OR
    2. Vote at your polling place on Election Day. You may use the Polling Place and Sample Ballot Lookup Tool to check the location of your polling place.
      • Polling places are open on Election Day, Tuesday, June 7, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
      • Bring your vote-by-mail ballot and return envelope with you to exchange for a polling place ballot.
      • If you do not bring your vote-by-mail ballot or envelope to your polling place, you can vote provisionally. When a voter casts a provisional ballot, the Department reviews the voter’s registration information, and, after validating the voter’s eligibility and confirming that he or she has not cast another ballot, the Department counts the provisional ballot.

  • Track your vote-by-mail ballot

    Track your ballot from the date it is printed, to when the ballot packet is delivered to the post office en route to you, to when the Department receives the ballot, verifies the signature on the return envelope, and counts the ballot. In situations in which the Department cannot count a ballot, the tool provides the reason and possible actions the voter can take that would allow the Department to count the ballot.
