My name isn't on the Registered Voters List - Can I Still Vote?

Provisional Voting

If your registration record cannot be found or your eligibility to vote is questioned at the polls, you may still cast a provisional ballot. A provisional ballot includes all offices that are on the regular ballot, but is counted only if the Clerk's office can verify your registration.

  1. Sign the provisional voter affidavit label.
    You will receive a copy of the Information for Provisional Voters Receipt with your Provisional Voter Information label affixed to it.
  2. An election judge will note on the affidavit label the reason(s) you were issued a provisional ballot.
  3. The election judge will issue you a card that will enable you to vote a provisional ballot on a touch-screen voting machine.
  4. Vote your ballot.
  5. After voting, your votes will be secured and stored.

After the polls close:

  • The Clerk's office receives all provisional ballots and determines the registration status for each provisional voter within two weeks after the election.
  • If the Clerk's office determines you are registered and eligible to vote: Your ballot is counted. The final vote total for each candidate in an election is adjusted to include provisional votes before official results are issued.
  • If you are not registered, the votes you cast will not be counted. However, the information you supplied on the affidavit form will serve as a registration application. In this case, you will receive a voter identification card in the mail, which will enable you to vote in the next election unless you move before then.
