    Check your Precinct Card

    After you register, the Secretary of State will send your precinct card to your county, who will then send it to you. Your precinct card lets you know where you need to go in order to vote. It is important to note that you don't need to bring your precinct card to vote.

    If you have misplaced or have not received your precinct card within 3 to 4 weeks of submitting your voter registration application, contact your local county registration office to request a new precinct card or to check the status of your application. You can also verify that you’re properly registered to vote by visiting the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page and submitting your information.
