How do I Sign the Poll Books at the Polls?

Beginning in 2012, voters must sign the poll book or Supplemental poll book if you just registered the day you vote to obtain a ballot.  The poll book now contains a signature block for each voter.  Only 1 poll book needs to be signed.  Voters unable to sign the poll book because of a physical disability are exempt from this requirement.  If this applies to you, tell the election officials that you are unable to sign because of a disability.  Election officials will write "exempt" in your signature block.

After you've signed the poll book, you will be given a voting number and a ballot, and will be directed to the booth.

Correcting the ballot.  If you make a mistake on your ballot, you may ask for a new ballot.  You will be asked to destroy your invalid ballot.  You are allowed up to 3 ballots due to errors you made in marking the ballot.  If you need assistance, please ask.  Election workers have been trained to help all voters.
