|Voting At The Polls|
At your polling place, you will be asked to show photo and signature identification. Your Driver's License is ideal since it contains your photo and signature. If you do not have proper identification, you will be given a provisional ballot to complete and place in an envelope. If you make a mistake on your ballot, take it to a poll worker and you will be given a new ballot. You are entitled up to three ballots
|How To Mark Your Ballot Correctly|
TO VOTE, COMPLETELY FILL IN THE OVAL NEXT TO YOUR CHOICE
You must completely fill in the oval for you vote to count. Any other mark may not be read by the scanner.
You must write in the name AND fill in the oval next to the name, for the write-in vote to count.
Also, the write-in candidate must be a QUALIFIED candidate. Check with your precinct clerk for a list of qualified write-in candidates.
Do NOT use a check mark.
Do NOT mark the oval with an X.
Do NOT circle the oval
|Accu-Vote Optical Scanner|
The Accu-Vote Precinct Counter is the optical scan voting machine used in Jefferson County to count ballots at the precincts.
When you make a mistake on your ballot, this is considered a Spoiled Ballot and you may ask for a replacement. You may receive up to two replacements or a total of three ballots.
An Overvote is when you vote for more than the number of candidates allowed in a race. If a race is overvoted, the Accu-Vote will return the ballot to the voter. The voter must then return the spoiled ballot to the clerk and receive a new ballot.
An Undervote is when you do not vote in a particular race. That race will not be counted. The Accu-Vote will not return the ballot to the voter unless the entire ballot is blank.
