INFORMATION TO ELECTORS
Upon entering the polling place, an elector shall give his or her name and address, show an acceptable form of photo identification and sign the poll book before being permitted to vote. If an elector is not registered to vote, an elector may register to vote at the polling place serving his or her residence if the elector provides proof of residence. Where ballots are distributed to electors, the initials of two inspectors must appear on the ballot. Upon being permitted to vote, the elector shall retire alone to a voting booth and cast his or her ballot except that an elector who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the elector’s minor child or minor ward. An election official may inform the elector of the proper manner for casting a vote, but the official may not in any manner advise or indicate a particular voting choice.
At the partisan primary election, the elector may select the party of his or her choice. Voting for candidates of more than one party may invalidate the ballot. You must cast a vote for individual candidates.
- If a party preference is designated, and the votes are cast for ballot candidates of another party or write-in votes are cast in another party, only votes cast in the designated party will count.
- If a party preference is not designated and votes are cast for candidates or write in votes are cast, in more than one party, no votes will be counted
Where PAPER BALLOTS are used, the elector shall mark the oval at the left of the name of the candidate for whom he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the elector shall write in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote. On referendum questions, the elector shall mark the oval at the left of “yes” if in favor of the question, or the elector shall mark the oval at the left of “no” if opposed to the question.
Where TOUCH SCREEN voting systems are used, the elector shall touch the screen by the name of the candidate for whom he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the elector shall type in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote. On referendum questions, the elector shall touch the screen next by the “yes” if in favor of the question, or the elector shall touch the screen next to “no” if opposed to the question.
The vote should not be cast in any other manner.
If the elector spoils a ballot, he or she shall return it to an election official who shall issue another ballot in its place, but not more than three ballots shall be issued to any one elector. If the ballot has not been initialed by two inspectors or is defective in any other way, the elector shall return it to the election official, who shall issue a proper ballot in its place. Not more than five minutes’ time shall be allowed inside a voting booth or machine. Sample ballots or other materials to assist the elector in casting his or her vote may be taken into the booth and copied. The sample ballot shall not be shown to anyone so as to reveal how the ballot is marked.
An elector may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the elector declares to the presiding official that he or she is unable to read, has difficulty reading, writing or understanding English or that due to disability is unable to cast his or her ballot. The selected individual rendering assistance may not be the elector’s employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the elector. After an official ballot is marked, the elector shall leave the booth, insert the ballot in the voting device and leave the polling place promptly.
