Tuesday, November 3, is the 2020 presidential election.
The deadline to register to vote, or update an existing registration, is Tuesday, October 13. (You cannot register and vote on the same day; it takes a few days, and you must get confirmation that you're registered, either in the mail or you can check online.)
Early absentee-in-person voting begins Friday, Sept. 18, and ends Sat., Oct. 31. There are three Saturdays when registrars will have Saturday in-person voting: Sept. 19, Oct. 24, and Oct. 31.

If you have already requested a mail-in ballot, those won't be mailed out until Sept. 18, so wait until Sept. 25 to expect to receive it, or to send in another request
