• U.S. passport,
• debit or credit card,
• military ID, student ID,
• retirement center ID,

On Tuesday, Nov. 3, the day of the general election, polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
If you do not know where your polling place is, contact your county Supervisor of Elections. You can also find your precinct and polling place on your county Supervisor of Elections’ website.
