If a voter changes their mind, does not wish to vote by-mail and wants to vote in person, they must bring the ballot with them to the voting location and relinquish it upon check-in. They will be issued a separate ballot that will be marked and fed into the scanner/tabulator.

Curbside voting for those with a disability or age 65 and older is available during early voting. 

Voters must provide their name and address and show an acceptable form of ID.  To view a complete list of acceptable IDs, visit the state Department of Election’s Voting In-Person page.
