CAN I VOTE IN PERSON IF I ALREADY REQUESTED AN ABSENTEE/MAIL BALLOT?

Yes, but you should bring your ballot with you to the polls. If you don't bring your ballot with you, some counties will allow you to vote normally, but others may have you vote by provisional ballot, which takes longer to fill out, and won't be counted until after Election Day. If you have the benefit of time, you may want call your local election office to confirm your ballot was sent and wait for it to arrive.

Voting by Mail? #makeitcount

  1. Get in your ballot ASAP. Since we’re close to Election Day, bring your ballot to your election office or a ballot drop box if available. 
  2. Sign your envelope & add your address where required. If your state requires a witness, make your witness sign & add his/her address! And when asked to add a date, put the FULL date (e.g. 11/03/2020)!
  3. Match your signature to your “official” sig on file. Not sure what that is? Match to your government ID.
  4. Follow instructions to a T. Avoid smudges. (No completing on a wet surface!) Fill ovals completely. As needed, use a specific color of ink. And if a “secrecy envelope” (inner envelope in an outer envelope) is required, use it!
  5. Track it. Track your ballot to see that it arrives. Call your elections office if any issues arise.
