Primary Election Tomorrow
The 2022 Primary Election will be held on March 1st, 2022. Due to redistricting, all 181 legislative seats are up for re-election this year. If needed, primary election runoffs will be held on May 24th, 2022.
Election Day Voting Locations
Residents in counties participating in the Countywide Polling Place Program (CWPP) can vote at any location in their county of residence. Residents in other counties may only vote at the voting precinct assigned to them and may find their voting location using the Secretary of State’s “My Voter Portal.” Election day voting hours are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at all polling places statewide.
Election results will be available through the Secretary of State website. The Secretary of State election night portal provides preliminary results and updates every five minutes until 100% of precincts have reported in. While the majority of results typically are available within hours of polls closing, it can take more time for full results to be reported from all counties.
