What happens if I do not sign my ballot, my signature does not match, or I forgot to include a copy of ID when my ballot said I needed to?

If your ballot is deficient and needs to be cured then your County Clerk will send you a letter in the mail and you will have until eight (8) days after the election to cure your ballot and ensure that it is counted.

I made an incorrect mark on my ballot, can I get a new one?

Yes. To request a replacement ballot in-person or vote in-person, visit any VSPC in your county. See for a map of VSPCs near you, and their days and hours of operation. However, once you submit your ballot, you cannot correct any of the selections that you already made.

What should I do if I do not receive my mail ballot or make a mistake, damage, or lose my mail ballot?

You may request a replacement mail ballot from your county clerk. You may also vote in-person at a voter service and polling center in the county that you are registered to vote in.
