Early voting starts Nov. 2 at county election boards across the state. Voters will decide presidential, congressional, state legislative and some county local races.

Election boards will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 2, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Nov. 3 and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 5.

Precinct polling places will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 6. They are not open for early voting.

Voters across the state also will decide six state questions that deal with a variety of issues, including intangible property tax, caps on the assessed values of property, affirmative action programs and the pardon and parole process.

State law now requires voters to have a valid form of identification. That can be anything from a voter registration card from the state Election Board that is mailed to every registered voter, to a driver's license or a passport.

If voters do not have a valid form of identification, they can cast a provisional ballot which will be counted after election board officials investigate the validity of the voter's identity.
