Casting Your Vote in Chesterfield

Voting Instructions for the Optical Scan System


votinginstructions_clip_image002Use the marking device in the voting booth to blacken the oval next to the candidate of your choice. If you are voting absentee, then use either a black ballpoint pen or a No. 2 pencil to mark your ballot.

Be sure to completely fill in the oval and stay within the lines of the oval like this: votinginstructions_clip_image003 

To vote for a person not on the ballot, completely fill in the oval to the left of the "Write-in" line provided and write the name of the person in the space provided. (Write-in votes are NOT allowed in a primary election.)

If you change your mind or make a mistake on your ballot, please contact an election official at your voting location to obtain another ballot. If you are voting absentee and make a mistake, please call 804-748-1471 for assistance.

Please contact an election official for help if you have any questions.

Once you have marked your ballot, then take it to the counter - carrying it face down - and insert it face down into the vote counter.

If you are voting absentee, re-fold and place your ballot in the proper envelope and mail it to the Registrar's office (see absentee instructions sent with your ballot.)
