Here is some basic information for you, the voter. If you have any questions after reading this poster, or at any time during the voting process, ask your Town Clerk or an Election Official.
Go to “Check In Here”. Give your name and, if asked, your residence to the Election Official in a clear, audible voice. Wait until your name is repeated and checked off by the Election Official. Enter within the guardrail and do not leave until you have voted. An Election Official will hand you a ballot. Go to a vacant booth or table.
MARK YOUR BALLOT
Fill in the oval for either “YES” or “NO” for each question on the question ballot and the oval next to each candidate you wish to vote for on the candidate ballot. If you mark the wrong oval by mistake, ask the Election Official for a new ballot. Three ballots are the limit.
Place your voted ballot into the ballot box slot and leave the voting area by passing outside the guardrail.
WHAT TO DO IF:
YOU‘RE NOT ON THE CHECKLIST
If your name has been dropped from the checklist and you think it was in error, speak to the Election Official available here at the polling place and ask that your name be put back on. They should check thoroughly and correct any error. If the problem isn‘t cleared up to your satisfaction, call the Secretary of State‘s office at 1-800-439-VOTE (8683).
YOU‘RE DISABLED, VISUALLY IMPAIRED, CAN‘T READ OR CAN‘T GET FROM YOUR CAR TO THE POLLING PLACE
Tell an Election Official. You may bring a friend or relative to help you as long as she or he is a registered voter. A ballot may be brought out to your car by two Election Officials so you can vote there.
IT IS ILLEGAL TO
- Knowingly vote more than once either in the same town or in different towns.
Chat or socialize in the voting area especially when people are in the process of voting.
