A provisional ballot is a paper ballot used by a voter whose eligibility to vote is in question and cannot be determined on Election Day. The Elections office has three business days to determine eligibility of a provisional voter.
Beginning the day following the election, the registrar investigates each and every provisional ballot in an attempt to help prove the voter’s eligibility. If the registrar can find proof that the voter is eligible to vote then the voter’s ballot is counted, if not the voter’s ballot is rejected.
The registrar will notify each provisional voter to tell the voter if their ballot was counted or not, and if not, why it was not counted.
If you vote a provisional ballot and your eligibility to vote is confirmed, your provisional ballot is counted.
Please note, if you appear to vote in the wrong county, and you choose to vote a provisional ballot rather than go to your correct county, your ballot will not count.
