What if my name is not in the electronic poll book?

If the election inspector is unable to locate your information, either during early voting or on Election Day, you will be allowed to vote by Affidavit Ballot. The election inspectors will need your current address to make sure you are given the correct ballot to vote.  After Election Day, the Board of Elections will research your registration and count you’re Affidavit Ballot, if you are a qualified voter. You will be sent a letter notifying you whether or not your vote was counted. If your vote is not counted, the letter will inform you why it did not count.
