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

Yes, but you should bring your ballot with you to the early voting site to save time. You may also have to sign a statement confirming you haven't already voted. To vote on Election Day, you should definitely bring your ballot. Otherwise you may have to 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 or track your ballot to confirm your ballot was sent and wait for it to arrive.

  2. Sign & date it. Sign & date your ballot as instructed on the outer envelope. Always use the full date (e.g., 10/23/2020)!

  4. Track it. Track your ballot, using the link on our state page, to see that your ballot arrives on time. If you see any issues, contact your election office.
