What is the voting process like at the Election Office?

Use the entrance from the parking lot on the east side of the building.

Voter check in is first. Show the election worker your photo ID. You will state your name and your current address. Documents which are accepted for voter photo ID include your driver’s license, a government-issued ID, or a passport. Most voters use their driver’s license.

When asked, you can choose to vote a paper ballot or use an available touchscreen. The primary method of voting is a paper ballot. The touchscreen is simply a ballot marking device. This machine prints your votes on a ballot card which you can review before casting your ballot.   

If you make a mistake marking your ballot you can request a replacement ballot from the election worker who gave you your ballot. When you are finished marking your ballot, please review it and then go to the ballot box to cast your ballot.

If you have any questions, ask any election worker. Election workers are not allowed to tell you who to vote for. 

What if I make a mistake on my ballot?

If you're voting on a paper ballot, don't try to correct your mistake. For example, if the instructions say, “Vote for One” and you voted for two or selected the wrong candidate, return to the table where you received your ballot and ask for a replacement. You are allowed no more than two replacement ballots. If you need assistance, please ask any election worker.

If you're marking your ballot using a touchscreen, simple tap the box again to uncheck it, then make your new selection. If you need help, ask one of the election workers.
