Voter Questions & Answers

When is the election?

November 5, 2019. The polls are open from 7 am - 8 pm

Why did OCC make the decision to hold the election on November 5, 2019, instead of waiting until next year during the regular election in 2020?

Our decision was based on many factors, but most importantly, we can better educate voters in a non-presidential election year, and this allows us to plan ahead to meet the changing needs of our students and the community.
