If you voted early (in person or by mail ballot), make sure your ballot was counted.

Check with your county Registrar’s office. They can tell you:

  • If your ballot arrived
  • If your ballot was accepted for counting

If your ballot was rejected, they must tell you WHY.

If your ballot was rejected for lack of signature match:

  • Go to your Registrar’s office and ask to see the signature on file for you.
  • If it is not your signature, or your signature has changed significantly over the years, you should ask to update your signature.

If your ballot was rejected for signature, and you are the one who actually signed your ballot, politely but assertively demand to vote again, since your ballot was unfairly rejected.

Bring a photo ID with you that includes your signature in order to prove you are who you say you are.

Don’t be disenfranchised!
