Make Sure Your Vote By Mail/ Absentee Ballot Is Counted
- If someone helps you fill out your ballot, make sure they mark YOUR CHOICE.
- After voting, put your ballot in the secrecy envelope, then in the affidavit envelope provided. Print and sign your name in the proper locations on the back of the affidavit envelope. Your signature will be compared to the one on file in the Elections Office to verify its validity. If you do not sign your affidavit envelope, your ballot cannot be counted.
- If you receive an absentee ballot, and find you are able to go to the polls on elections day, take your ballot with you. It will be voided by a poll worker, and you will be allowed to vote at the polls.
Cure your unsigned AB ballot.
Military personnel, their spouses, and dependents may apply for voter registration or request absentee ballots with a Federal Post Card Application (which can be obtained from the Unit Voting Officer). US Embassies and Consulates can assist in completing, witnessing, and mailing Federal Post Cards, absentee ballots, and other election materials.
