Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock, election day is almost here!!

The 2018 Election Day is approaching fast. If you have not yet registered to vote, don’t worry–you can still vote. Whether it be because you just turned 18 or never had time to, you can vote in this year’s election. You can sign up as a Provisional Voter at your local polling location on Election Day. When you ask the clerk to vote as a Provisional Voter, they will also hand you a voter registration form to ensure you are set to vote in the next election.

What is a Provisional Ballot?

A Provisional Ballot is a regular ballot that is printed on pink colored paper to distinguish them from the regular ballots. Provisional Ballots are used by voters who believe they are registered to a specific polling location but aren’t on the list, usually vote by mail but chose to vote at a polling location, a voter is flagged as “Voter ID Required” but has no valid ID, or the voter has not registered to vote. All Provisional Ballots are counted by the election officials and your vote will be included and counted.
