PRIMARY ELECTION GUIDE: Voter ID, Polling Places, Candidates, Ballot

This election guide will give you the information you need to get to the right place at the right time to cast your ballot for your preferred candidates on Tuesday, Aug. 14. There are five polling places in Hudson and they're all open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

While the Voter ID law had taken effect and impacted the primary races in February, an injunction has put the requirement that voters show identification on hold. Voters who are registering at their polling place will be asked for a current photo ID or other document showing proof of residence. All voters will be required to sign in to the voter roll book when they arrive at the polls.
