Questions


Answers

How is Early Voting done?
It’s simple. Registered voters can go to any of the locations designated as early voting sites and cast their ballot using a DS200 machine just as they would normally do on Election Day.

Why should I vote early?
The intent is to meet the needs of busy people who want more options than just voting on a single day at a single precinct. We want to remove any physical or psychological barriers that might prevent someone from voting. If you know, for example, that you have a full day’s worth of activities on Election Day, you can make it easier on yourself by taking advantage of the early voting option. Between early voting, absentee ballots and traditional polling on Election Day, there are a number of voting options so that no one should be prevented from voting.

Are there any drawbacks to early voting?
Early voting provides flexibility and convenience. However, some voters may wish to wait until Election Day to cast their votes. Historically, there has always been a crush of last-minute news coverage or other information about the candidates that happens in the final days of a campaign. This information may be helpful in making a decision. However, if you know who you support, early voting may be a good option for you.

How does this affect absentee ballots?
Early voting is just another option to allow people to participate in the election process. Voters who may be out of town on Election Day, or otherwise be unable to cast a ballot at that time, can now choose between voting early or requesting and mailing in the absentee ballot.

How will early voting affect the election?
Apart from providing more options as to how you vote, it is hoped that early voting will encourage more voter participation. By law, votes are tallied at the conclusion of Election Day, whether they have been through early voting, absentee ballot or on Election Day.

What do I need to vote early?
All you need to do is show up with your current photo and signature ID. It’s also a great idea to bring a sample ballot with you that is already marked with your choices. That you can enter your choices on the electronic voting machine and get quickly on your way.

I’ve requested an absentee ballot. Can I participate in early voting at one of the locations?
Yes. However, if you’ve requested and received an absentee ballot and you later decide to vote at the polls, you must bring your absentee ballot with you so that we can cancel it before you vote at the polls.
