Hundreds of voters have already headed to their designated polls today to cast their votes for mayor, city council and five bonds on the ballot. The general election was supposed to take place in November 2021, but lagging Census data and outdated maps moved the date to July. During the early voting period, which lasted from July 7-23, 12,341 people voted in the election.

Polls opened on Tuesday at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.
