The 2024 primary election is nearly here! During this election, voters will choose which candidates should be the party nominees to appear on the general election ballot in November. Primary Election Day falls on Tuesday, March 5, but early voting and absentee voting options mean that the time to make your voting plan is now 

Are you registered and ready to vote? Laws and regulations around voting are different in almost every state. The University Libraries has put together resources to help you navigate the election process, no matter when you’re planning to vote and what state/district you call home.
