Provisional Ballots

Sign with black background and white letters that says polling station

Provisional ballots are cast when there’s a question about a voter’s eligibility. The local clerk’s office withholds provisional ballots from counting until officials are certain the vote should be accepted. If a voter, for example, forgets their ID at home or isn’t showing up in the voter rolls, they can cast a provisional ballot.

If you received a provisional ballot, you have six days from Election Day, to provide the Clerk’s Office with the information they need to have your vote counted.
