Voting Day Tips
Make sure you go to the right place. You can only vote where you are registered. Make sureyou double check your location on your Voters Registration card.
Bring ID. Most voters are not asked for identification, but some are, especially those who are voting for the first time or who haven’t voted in a few years. Your driver’s license will work. You can also use a recent utility bill or rent receipt on landlord’s letterhead.
Know your rights. If you make a mistake on your ballot, just ask for a new one. You have the right to receive up to two replacement ballots if you make a mistake and spoil yours.
Ask for help! Don’t be afraid to ask a question if you are uncertain about something on the ballot. Poll workers are available to help. They won’t help you make a voting decision but they will help make sure you are able to cast a ballot that counts.
Exercise your right. Vote 2012!
