DON’T FORGET TO BRING YOUR PHOTO ID!
If you don’t have a photo ID, you will be able to cast a provisional ballot, which may or may not
be counted, depending upon a judgment call from the board of elections after the election. There will be a help station to help those
without proper ID. You can avoid this problem by voting an absentee ballot by mail. Look on the Board of Elections website for an absentee ballot application. The deadline for applying for an absentee ballot is March 8.
DID YOU FORGET TO REGISTER?
You can still register and vote on the same day during early voting, but not on Election Day.
