FAQ

Q.

What is a provisional ballot?

A.

If a voter’s eligibility is in question on Election Day they are allowed to cast a provisional ballot. After the voter marks their ballot and returns it to the poll worker, the voter is required to provide the necessary identification or documentation to the Auditor’s office. If it is determined that you do have the right to vote in the precinct in which you voted your ballot will then be counted and included in the final vote total.

Q.

What do I need to bring with me to vote?

A.

Starting in January of 2019 you will be required to show identification. If you need to register to vote on Election Day, you must bring proof of identification and proof of residency.
