Below is information regarding early voting, mail-in ballots, new election day polling place procedures and how to cast a write-in vote.

1. Check in procedures 
     Check in at polling places, both early voting and Election Day places, will be done
     by polling workers using digital poll books. The paper voter registration books have
     been officially retired.


2. Voting Machines
       A. Early voting locations - at these locations, new digital machines are being used.
             Selections are made by pressing the oval to the right of the candidates. After 
             all selections are made and reviewed, you print your ballot and it is then 
             scanned to be officially recorded.

Anyone who uses an IPad or IPhone should not have any problems.

       B. Election Day voting locations- On Election Day, the digital machines will not
           be used- all locations will be using the same machines used in previous elections
            which most voters are familiar with.

  3. Write - in Voting
          Because of the different machines being used, the write-in procedure differs 
           in early day voting vs Election Day voting as follows:
          A. Early voting Machine
                  1. Press oval in personal choice column
                  2. Keyboard will pop up on screen to type in name
                  3. Once completed, hit confirm
                  4. Name will then appear in personal choice column


       B. Election Day voting locations- On Election Day, the digital machines will not
           be used- all locations will be using the same machines used in previous elections
            which most voters are familiar with.

  3. Write - in Voting
          Because of the different machines being used, the write-in procedure differs 
           in early day voting vs Election Day voting as follows:
          A. Early voting Machine
                  1. Press oval in personal choice column
                  2. Keyboard will pop up on screen to type in name
                  3. Once completed, hit confirm
                  4. Name will then appear in personal choice column

           B. Election Day Machine
                  1. In personal choice column, press dark box 
                  2. Blinking green x will appear 
                  3. Go to write-in keyboard at bottom left-hand corner and type in name.
                  4. Hit “enter” on the write in keyboard (note - unlike digital machine, name 
                         will not show in personal choice column)

    4. Mail in Ballots
             A. Unlike last year’s general election, mail in ballots can NOT be dropped 
                     off at Election Day polling places. They can only be dropped at ballot 
                     drop box locations (up until 8pm on Election Day).
              B. If poll books show a voter has been sent a mail in ballot, they will not be 
                     able to vote in the machine under any circumstances - no exceptions. If 
                     someone says they never received a mail in ballot, or lost it, etc. and wants 
                     to vote, they will only be allowed to cast a provisional paper ballot.

Happy Voting!
