  • You MAY NOT drop a voted ballot at your polling location.

  • If you applied for an absentee or mail-in ballot but have opted to go to your polling location to vote, there are two (2) options:
    • Option # 1 - Take you ballot and declaration envelope to your polling location. Inform the poll worker you wish to vote in-person and are surrending your ballot and materials. The poll works will mark the ballot surrendered, place them in an envelope to be returned to the Elections Office. You will need to sign a form confirming you surrendered your ballot and are voting in-person. Once done, you can vote as you have in the past.

    • Option #2 - If you did not receive your ballot or cannot locate it, you can still vote at your polling location. You will need to cast a provisional ballot. Once voted, you will return your ballot to the poll worker who will secure it in an envelope and note the reason why you requested a povisional ballot. Your vote will not be counted on Election Day but will instead be returned to the Election Board for review as part of the Election Board process. Once the board verifies the provisional ballot is valid, it will be opened and counted and added to the overall vote.
