Grace period registration and voting extends the registration period by allowing voters to register and vote until the Monday before an election. Guidelines limit when and where grace period registrants can vote – during the 27 day grace period, voters must register and vote in person at one of the Clerk’s designated grace period locations.

Individuals wishing to vote during the grace period must bring two pieces of identification to register.
