Information to Voters

 

Upon entering the polling place, a voter shall state his or her name and address, show an acceptable form of photo identification and sign the poll book before being permitted to vote.  If a voter does not have acceptable photo identification, the voter may obtain a free photo ID for voting from the Division of Motor Vehicles.  If a voter is not registered to vote, a voter may register to vote at the polling place serving his or her residence, if the voter presents proof of residence in a form specified by law.  Where ballots are distributed to voters, the initials of two inspectors must appear on the ballot.  Upon being permitted to vote, the voter shall retire alone to a voting booth and cast his or her ballot except that a voter who is a parent or guardian may be accompanied by the voter's minor child or minor ward.  An election official may inform the voter 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, the voter shall select the party of his or her choice.  Voting for candidates of more than one party may invalidate the ballot.  The voter must cast a vote for individual candidates.

 

Where Paper Ballots are Used

 

  • The voter shall choose the ballot of the party of his or her choice.

If the voter votes on more than one party ballot, no votes will be counted.

 

On the party ballot of his or her choice, the voter shall make an (X) or other mark in the square next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote.  To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter 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 voter shall make an (X) or other mark in the square next to "yes" if in favor of the question, or the voter shall make an (X) or other mark in the square next to "no" if opposed to the question.

 

When using a tactile ballot marking device (Vote-PAD) to mark a paper ballot, the voter shall obtain from the inspectors, the assistive device and any audio or dexterity aids if required.

 

Within the party of his or her choice, the voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote. To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall write in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote and fill in the oval or  connect the arrow next to the write-in line.  On referendum questions, the voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to "yes" if in favor of the question, or the voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to "no" if opposed to the question.

 

Where Optical Scan Voting is used

 

  • If a party preference is designated, and 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

 

Within the party of his or her choice, the voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote.  To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter shall write in the name of the person of his or her choice in the space provided for a write-in vote and fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to the write-in line.  On referendum questions, the voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to "yes" if in favor of the question, or the voter shall fill in the oval or connect the arrow next to "no" if opposed to the question.

 

When using an electronic ballot marking device (“Automark,” Express Vote,” “Clear Access” or “ImageCast Evolution (ICE)” to mark an optical scan ballot, the voter shall touch the screen at the party of his or her choice.  The voter shall then touch the screen at the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote.  To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter 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 voter shall touch the screen at "yes" if in favor of the question, or the voter shall touch the screen at "no" if opposed to the question.

 

Where Touch Screen Voting is Used

 

The voter shall touch the screen at the party of his or her choice.  The voter shall then touch the screen at the name of the candidate of his or her choice for each office for which he or she intends to vote.  To vote for a person whose name does not appear on the ballot, the voter 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 voter shall touch the screen at "yes" if in favor of the question or the voter shall touch the screen at "no" if opposed to the question.

The vote should not be cast in any other manner.  Not more than five minutes’ time shall be allowed inside a voting booth.  Sample ballots or other materials to assist the voter in marking 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.

 

Spoiled Ballots

 

If a voter spoils a paper or optical scan 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 voter.  If the ballot has not been initialed by two inspectors or is defective in any other way, the voter shall return it to the election official, who shall issue a proper ballot in its place. 

 

The voter may spoil a touch screen ballot at the voting station before the ballot is cast.

 

After Voting the Ballot

 

After an official paper ballot is marked, it shall be folded so the inside marks do not show, but so the printed endorsements and inspectors' initials on the outside do show.  The voter shall then deposit the voted ballot in the ballot box, or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit, and deposit the un-voted ballots in the discard box.  The voter shall leave the polling place promptly.

 

After an official optical scan ballot is marked, it shall be inserted in the security sleeve, so the marks do not show.  The voter shall then insert the ballot in the voting device and discard the sleeve or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit.  If a central count system is used, the

voter shall insert the ballot in the ballot box and discard the sleeve or deliver the ballot to an inspector for deposit.  The voter shall leave the polling place promptly.

 

After an official touch screen ballot is marked, the voter shall leave the polling place promptly.

 

A voter may select an individual to assist in casting his or her vote if the voter 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 voter's employer or an agent of that employer or an officer or agent of a labor organization which represents the voter.

The following is a sample of the official ballot: Page 1 & Page 2
