FAQ

Q.

If I change my mind on who I want to vote for after I have returned my ballot, can I get a new one?

A.

No. If you have already returned your absentee ballot to the Auditor’s office you may not request a new ballot if you have changed your mind on who you wish to vote for.

Q.

I am already registered but my information needs updated; can I do that on Election Day?

A.

Yes. While it is recommended that you update your information prior to Election Day to speed things up at the polls, you may wait and do so on Election Day. If you are updating your address just make sure you are going to the polling place for your new address. When updating your address you will now need to provide proof of identity and proof of residency.
