Every year we have a Primary Election on the 1st Tuesday of August and a General Election on the 1st Tuesday of November. This year’s general election is Tuesday, November 2nd. The 2021 elections are nonpartisan races meaning the candidates’ party affiliation will not be on the ballot. Use our quick voting guide or view the district voting guides below to help you decide who to vote for. For races with candidates not listed here, we suggest using Mainstream Coalition as a guide.
