DECIDING HOW TO VOTE STEP BY STEP
We’re here to help make all this clear! Just ask yourself and proceed as far down the page as you need till you REACH A YES:
DO I WANT TO VOTE IN PERSON ON ELECTION DAY?
No: keep reading….
Be sure to assemble ALL 3 ITEMS: 1) the ballot inside… 2) the inner “secrecy” envelope inside… 3) the outer envelope (which you have filled out and signed on the back).
No: Apply for a mail-in ballot as explained here.
DO I WANT TO DELIVER MY MAIL-IN BALLOT IN PERSON ON ELECTION DAY?
Yes: you can drop off your ballot (inside the 2 envelopes) at one of the Drop boxes announced for each election. If you choose this option, go yourself and take identification.
1) I mailed or dropped off my ballot; was it received? You can check your application’s status here. If you see “Pending,” your ballot has not been mailed to you. If you see “Processed,” your ballot has been mailed but unless it arrives in time for you to mail it in you will need to vote in person.
2) If you got your ballot but now want to vote in person, take it with its 2 envelopes to your polling place, stand in line, get it voided, and vote a regular ballot. If you can’t find all 3 of those pieces, you can cast a provisional ballot.
3) If you applied for but never got your ballot, or got it and lost or spoiled it, ask again if time permits, or go to your polling place on election day and explain.
