Needed to Vote

If you arrive at the polling place without a valid Photo ID, you can vote a provisional ballot. After completing the provisional ballot, the Election Official will provide you with written instructions on how to submit a copy of your photo ID for your vote to count. Other provisional ballot information for voters includes:
- A voter who casts a provisional ballot will have until noon on the Monday following the election to deliver a copy of their photo ID to the voter registration office in which the ballot was cast.
- Voters may submit a copy of their ID via fax, email, in-person submission, or through USPS or commercial delivery service. This information is included in the written instructions provided by the Officer of Election.
- A Friday postmark will not be sufficient if the copy of the photo ID is not delivered to the electoral board by noon on Monday.
Please note: a copy of the photo ID must be delivered to the electoral board by noon on Friday following the election, or the provisional ballot cannot be counted.
Voting with Special Needs
The Express Vote machine is available at each polling place to assist voters with disabilities to vote in the same private manner as The Optical Scan System.
An Officer of Election will also be available at each polling place to assist voters at curbside who are 65 years of age or older or any voter with a physical disability.
Voters with continuing disabilities may apply annually to receive absentee ballots for all elections within a given year using the annual absentee ballot process.
