How to get a new ballot
Contact our office and ask for a replacement ballot. We will cancel your original ballot. If there is not enough time to get a new ballot, completely cross out the name of the candidate you accidentally marked.
Contact us to cancel your ballot. Depending on how much time is left until Election Day, your options may be:
- To ask that we mail a new ballot
- To vote early in-person
- To vote at your polling place on Election Day
If your ballot is lost or damaged, contact us to get a replacement ballot. We will cancel your original ballot.
Do not return your original ballot, even if you eventually find or receive it. Only return your replacement ballot.
