What to Expect at the Polls

No campaigning within 10 feet of the entrance of the polling location.

Do not discuss any political subjects inside the polling place.

Feel free to ask an election official for help.

When you approach the elections table, an Election Official will ask for your name and possibly address and date of birth. Voters who are voting for the first time in a polling place are still required under existing law to present a form of ID.

After determining you are eligible to vote, you will be asked to sign your name in the poll book. When doing this, check your address listing. If you address is incorrect, tell the Official, who will give you a Voter Registration Form (PDF). This form is used to change your address as well as to register to vote. You will still be able to vote.

After signing your name, follow the instructions given to you by the poll worker.

When you have finished voting, tear off the stub on the bottom of the ballot for your records and place your ballot in the ballot box. The poll worker will then give you an “I Voted” sticker.
